Who we are

Under the leadership of founder, Denise Farrell, Environmental Attribute Advisors focuses on carbon offset development, energy efficiency projects and program implementation, renewable natural gas projects as well as traditional municipal financial advisory services.

Ms. Farrell has more than 20 years of traditional tax exempt financing experience.  Since 2006 she has focused exclusively on developing markets for environmental attributes. She has placed more than ten million dollars in environmental attributes for New York State clients and advised public and private solid waste entities on the eligibility, development and sale of carbon offsets generated from greenhouse gas reductions activities.

She is a former member of the Climate Action Reserve working group which revised the Urban Forestry Protocol in order to make it more accessible for municipal governments.

Prior to forming Environmental Attribute Advisors, Ms. Farrell worked for more than 20 years at Environmental Capital, a municipal financial advisory firm where she initiated and managed the firm’s environmental attribute development business.  She began her career at a major bank in the Municipal Underwriting and Acquisition Finance area specializing in structured finance while also teaching credit analysis in the domestic and international training program. She holds a BS from Georgetown University and an MBA from Fordham University's School of Business and attended the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs.
