Hello, I'm Eve Tamme.
I advise on Climate Policy.
Bringing Clarity to Climate Policy
I started working on international and European climate policy in 2004 and spent 15 years as a policymaker.
Today, I run my own climate policy advisory, Climate Principles, where I help organisations make sense of policymaking processes, recent developments, and future outlook. I focus primarily on Carbon Markets, Carbon Removal and Carbon Capture.
I share the latest insights via speaking engagements and my Inside Climate Policy blog. I have written a number of publications and frequently get quoted in media.
