As Associate Policy Director at Carbon Gap, Agnese oversees the development and implementation of Carbon Gap’s EU advocacy strategy. Her primary focus is on influencing the 2040 climate framework and ensuring that carbon removal remains a top priority in the upcoming EU legislature.  

Agnese joined Carbon Gap with the desire to contribute to the EU’s efforts to develop a robust strategy for carbon removal and to make sure the EU reaches climate neutrality by 2050 through a just and inclusive transition.
