      Matthew Hay

      With a degree in natural sciences and experience - both personal and professional - in landscape-scale ecological restoration, Matt has an intimate understanding of how to use the Woodland Carbon and Peatland Codes to finance nature-based solutions to climate change and the loss of biodiversity

      Matt loves getting out on the ground and seeing the tangible impacts that landscape-scale restoration projects can have. He is passionate about preserving and enhancing Scotland’s natural capital by helping land managers to maximise their contributions to climate change mitigation and nature recovery. 

      Energised by helping to shape the emerging natural capital markets, Matt is at the sharp end of carbon finance for nature-based solutions. These projects deliver societal and environmental goals while underpinning new and existing rural industries. 

      With previous experience in a major catchment-scale habitat restoration project, he takes a holistic approach to natural capital and enjoys the collaboration with our forestry and energy and renewables teams. Matt is currently focussing on peatland restoration and woodland expansion opportunities in the Highlands.
