- Consultant Global Climate Change Consultancy, Wellington, New Zealand
From 1996 to 2002 Murray led the New Zealand Ministry for the Environment’s climate change team where he managed the development of domestic climate change policy and was a leading senior negotiator in NZ delegations to international climate change meetings.
He is considered to be one of the key architects of the Kyoto Protocol framework. Murray founded Global Climate Change Consultancy (GtripleC) in 2003 to provide high-level strategic counsel to a range of international public and private sector clients. GtripleC’s focus is on the policy architecture of an enlarged and global climate change regime post-2012 – in particular as it relates to carbon markets, climate finance, LULUCF and REDDplus – and practical ‘on the ground’ capacity building that leads to investment and implementation at scale, not just more talk.
