Dominik has turned his passion for fighting climate change into his profession. In his efforts to decarbonize the global economy, he works as an economist in the World Bank’s Climate Change Group in Washington, D.C. As a co-lead of the World Bank’s activities in decarbonizing maritime transport, he mainly focuses on reducing emissions in the shipping sector. Furthermore, he works on developing carbon pricing policies in Côte d’Ivoire and on mainstreaming climate considerations in the World Bank’s project portfolio in East Asia and the Pacific. Prior to joining the World Bank Group, Dominik met the challenges of climate change as a senior advisor for First Climate, a private consultancy based in Zurich. He oversaw the carbon compliance management for large industrials, advised public institutions on climate policy and traded CO2 allowances in the EU and Swiss emissions trading systems.
