Assheton Carter collaborates closely with oil, gas and mining industries, as well as with conservation groups, development agencies, governments and community leaders to develop and implement practices that minimize impact on sensitive ecosystems and contribute to conservation. A variety of tools are being developed for integrating conservation into natural resource development. These range from metrics for measuring the net impact of development on sensitive ecosystems to dialogues on whether some areas should be off-limits to development.
Prior to joining CI, Carter was a Research Fellow at the Warwick Business School in the United Kingdom, where he managed projects and specifications for environmental and social performance indicators for the mining and energy sectors.
Carter trained in and practiced portfolio management and company share placement in a leading financial house in London and has held various management positions across sectors and national borders.
