Anatoli Launay-Smirnov

Coal Mine Methane Lead

Anatoli leads the Coal Mine Methane team, campaigning to reduce emissions from coal mines globally, which emit more methane than oil or gas industries. To achieve this, Ember is working with governments, international NGOs and organisations such as UNEP, UNECE and the International Methane Emissions Observatory, to develop policies and methodologies to measure, report and mitigate emissions of coal mine methane.

Anatoli graduated from the London School of Economics and has over 15 years of experience in the carbon and energy sector, including work in developing coal mine methane utilisation projects in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. Anatoli lives in France, raising a daughter, beagle and a kitten.
