David McLennan was a pioneer in the field of creating, verifying, and marketing emission reduction credits (ERCs) to a third party, conducting one of the first transactions of this kind in the world, in 1999.
He has successfully completed turn-key solutions including the design, engineering, construction, commissioning, operation, and management of landfill gas to energy projects as well as the creation and sale of carbon offsets resulting from the projects.
He has over 20 years of experience collaborating on projects with public and private organizations as an assessor, researcher (feasibility studies), and authority in early involvement in projects in Brazil, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, India, China, and the Philippines.

Stephen has been active in the environmental community as a scientist and consultant for over 20 years. Stephen received his Master of Science degree from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1998 and spent the next eight years working as a scientist at one of the world’s leading climate change research centres at the University of New Hampshire. He researched how changes in the management of agriculture and forestry land uses influence GHG emissions.
As a consultant, Stephen has led dozens of projects in the management of organizational sustainability planning and reporting. Stephen has experience working within many environmental and sustainability reporting frameworks, including SBTi, SASB, TCFD, GRI, CDP, and GHG Protocol. He has led sustainability or climate action projects for clients in numerous industry sectors, including financial and insurance, oil and gas, real estate, municipal operations, humanitarian response, and industrial manufacturing. Stephen has also led projects in carbon offset development, life cycle assessments, and risk and opportunity strategic planning.
In addition to his experience leading projects, Stephen has volunteered as an expert committee member on several national and international working groups involved with policy and protocol development. He served on the international working group that conducted the update of the ISO 14064 GHG management standards from 2015 - 2018. Stephen is currently serving as a member of two committees led by Environment and Climate Change Canada to develop carbon offset protocols for Canada’s upcoming national carbon trading market.
Matthew is an experienced founder in technology and renewables, recently part of launching a distributed data network powered by clean energy, with Meridian DLT. He has also co-founded a tokenized carbon registry in the EU, and created an emissions tracking application to enable carbon neutral reporting.
He has worked with Large scale Tidal power developers in the Bay of Fundy, and worked with wind energy partners in the architecture of green data centres. The custom technologies in nano servers were part of recent innovations in building cloud storage solutions with extremely low power usage.
Matthew holds a commerce degree from Dalhousie University, and has worked with over one hundred companies in securing financing and contributions to expand research based innovations from Atlantic Canada.
