Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

Nicolette Bartlett is Director of Carbon Pricing at CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project. CDP is an international not-for-profit organisation providing the only global environmental disclosure system.


As part of her role, Nicolette works with companies, policymakers and investors, focusing on the price signals that can and will deliver the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. CDP plays a leading role in both the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, as well as the global business coalition, We Mean Business.

Previously Nicolette was a Senior Programme Manager at the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, leading international projects within the climate policy team, including the international engagement of The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group, developing a Green Growth Platform in Pacific Alliance countries, the Climate Initiatives Database and research analysing the role that non-state actors play in driving down emissions. Nicolette was also responsible for developing an international network of business groups on climate change and also played a leading role in the creation of the Corporate Communiqués on Climate Change, which are seen by many as the definitive statements from the international progressive business community in support of climate change policy.

Nicolette has been an author or reviewer for a number of publications, including the latest CDP report on Carbon Pricing, the business chapter of the latest New Climate Economy report, a business brief on the implications of the Paris Agreement, a series of summary reports for business of the IPCC 5th Assessment Report for 11 economic sectors, as well as publications analysing the potential of collaborative initiatives to increase ambition reductions internationally.
