Francesca Battersby

Policy Analyst

As Policy Analyst based in London, Francesca contributes to analysis, content development, and advocacy across UK and EU policy files thanks to her experience working across carbon removal governance issues.

Prior to joining Carbon Gap, Francesca was a sustainability consultant at dss+, working on a range of projects including developing circular value chains for batteries, sustainability reporting for the tire industry, and mapping heat sharing rules under the EU ETS.

She also gained research experience as a Research Consultant at Foresight Transitions, where she undertook hands-on research with stakeholders mapping civil society positions, investigating corporate removal strategies, and building a convening platform, the Carbon Removal Centre, a topic she explored in several papers she authored as Visiting Researcher at Imperial College.

Francesca also chairs the UK’s Future Leaders Network for early career professionals working in greenhouse gas removal.
