Garrett has contributed to diverse 3Keel projects since 2017, working across multiple practice areas. He currently works within the Resilient Agriculture practice, conducting technical analyses and providing strategic advising on issues ranging from traceability for deforestation-risk commodities to implementation of regenerative agricultural practices. Garrett’s primary focus is on incentivising and deploying nature-based solutions and market-based interventions that harmonise essential economic functions with ecological boundaries. Past clients and projects include WWF, Nestlé, the British Retail Consortium, the Retail Cocoa Collaboration and the Palm Oil Transparency Coalition.
Within the Resilient Agriculture practice area, Garrett brings diverse experience in data management and policy analysis to help clients create a more sustainable food system. He concentrates particularly on opportunities to work within and alongside collaboratives that accelerate impact beyond a single supply chain.
Garrett received a Bachelor’s in Geology from the University of Colorado, after which he worked as a research assistant for author Jim Collins and taught English in South Korea. After being introduced to the sustainability sector through working for 3Keel, he returned to the University of Colorado to complete a Master’s in Sustainability Planning and Management. Garrett grew up in a small rural community in Western Colorado, where he learned at a young age to recognise the importance and the splendour of nature.
