VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZEFIRO METHANE CORP. (the “Company”, “Zefiro”, or “ZEFI”) is pleased to announce that Tina Reine has been appointed Chief Commercial Officer (“CCO”) of Zefiro, which has applied to have its common shares trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”). Listing is subject to receipt of conditional listing approval from the CSE and fulfilling all of the CSE’s requirements. Building upon an accomplished career in finance and the environmental markets, Ms. Reine will primarily be responsible for optimizing the Company’s earnings from carbon offsets earned through the completion of orphaned and abandoned wells located throughout the United States. Ms. Reine is also highly versed in the Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) aspects of carbon offsets, which can enhance their value proposition for corporate and institutional purchasers.
As Director of Carbon Markets at World Kinect Energy Services, Ms. Reine was responsible for both structuring deals and origination. Ms. Reine started her environmental markets career in London at Cantor Fitzgerald’s Environmental Markets group in 2007, selling forward contracts on carbon offsets. During this time, Ms. Reine also participated in policy debates in the United Kingdom’s Houses of Parliament to develop standards and registries for the voluntary trading market. Ms. Reine also helped build out the environmental markets division at J.P. Morgan and at NextEra Energy, managing an equity investment portfolio of carbon projects. Ms. Reine holds a Masters of Business Administration (“MBA”) from Columbia Business School in New York City.
Regarding her appointment as CCO of Zefiro, Ms. Reine commented, “Carbon offsets are more relevant than ever as an instrument for neutralizing emissions to help save the environment. Zefiro has an extraordinarily straightforward business model of capping wells, claiming carbon offsets from doing so, and strategically liquidating those offsets on public exchanges. With over USD $2 billion in carbon offset trading volume in the U.S. voluntary markets alone in 2021 (quadrupled from the previous year), these are very exciting times for this space and I am delighted to be helping to lead the way as Zefiro’s CCO upon launch.”
