Managing Director

bruce scott

Bruce founded Carbon South Limited in 2008. His interest in sustainability issues originated while working as part of the management team for the Te Kopi Bio-diversity project from 2002~2005.

He returned to New Zealand in 2002 after 20 years in Japan and Hong Kong working as a financial markets trader. Fluency in the Japanese language supported a diverse career making him well-versed in multi-cultural issues.

His financial experience facilitated a quick uptake on fundamentals of the carbon market and he is enjoying the challenge of helping small-to-medium sized businesses quantify, offset and reduce carbon emissions.

As a small business owner himself, he understands the need to be flexible in securing outcomes that benefit the environment and help companies on their path toward sustainability.

He is married to a Japanese national from Kyoto and has two children of adult age. Interests include Aikido, where he achieved a black belt, studying the Maori language, gardening, reading and writing.

Carbon Consultant

Barry comes from a UK financial services background where he was a professionally qualified financial adviser. He specialised in pension and employee benefit planning for over 20 years. His clients ranged from individual clients through to high net worth company directors.

Barry married a kiwi in 1987 and this was the reason for coming to Christchurch in 2006. One of Barry's key objectives when moving to New Zealand was to get involved in areas that interested and motivated him. This led him initially into the world of cricket where he coaches and provides administration support for junior cricket. The opportunity to join forces with Carbon South and advise businesses on carbon emissions auditing also fits this objective.

He enjoys working with people to achieve their objectives and then reviewing progress over time. The ability to build relationships, gain trust and provide a comprehensive service was essential in financial services and will be just as meaningful with his work at Carbon South.

He and his family have moved smoothly into their new way of life with two sporty boys now at high school. Watching and playing sport, visiting new dog walks and discovering New Zealand are his main interests.
