Introducing Caledonian Climate’s latest recruits

Caledonian Climate welcomes two new recruits who are dedicated to restoring peatlands in Scotland

Following a strong period of growth for Caledonian Climate, we are delighted to be expanding our close-knit team of talented professionals.

Over the last month, we have welcomed two new staff members to the team. Andrew Adamson has been appointed as Head of Operations, while Joanna MacLennan joins us as Graduate Environmental Consultant.

Both bring a wealth of skills, knowledge, and experience to the team, in addition to a passion for tackling climate change through the restoration of Scotland’s stunning peatlands.

Read on to get to know our new recruits a little better and discover what they will be doing here at Caledonian Climate.


Andrew Adamson 

Head of Operations

A respected rural professional, Andrew Adamson has over a decade of experience working on upland farms and estates, with a successful career heading up peatland restoration in Scotland.

Here at Caledonian Climate, Andrew is responsible for the effective and efficient integration of all aspects of our projects with the Peatland Code and enhancing the ‘on-the-ground’ delivery. Applying his expertise and years in the industry, Andrew ensures all peatland restoration programmes run smoothly and to the satisfaction of our clients, whilst considering the different land uses and advising on their integrated management.

Here’s what Andrew had to say about his role:

Why Caledonian Climate? The tight, close-knit team was a big appeal. Having worked at larger organisations previously, I was keen to be part of a smaller collection of dedicated and passionate individuals, where I felt I could make a difference.

Peatland restoration is a relatively new industry, and I could see that Caledonian Climate was really making the waves in the sector. I had spoken with Freddie previously and was inspired by his drive and passion for peatland restoration - I knew I wanted to be part of this innovative organisation.

What do you hope to achieve at Caledonian Climate? We have an energetic team who are keen to make a difference, and I am excited to be part of that.

I’m already feeling an immense sense of job satisfaction here and am looking forward to exploring more of the country.

Describe Caledonian Climate in 3 words: Innovative, entrepreneurial, and forward-thinking!


Joanna MacLennan


Graduate Environmental Consultant

With an undergraduate degree in Animal and Conservation Biology from Edinburgh Napier University, Joanna’s expertise lies in the ecology, conservation, and biodiversity of peatlands.

Working with the wider team, Joanna has been carrying out regular fieldwork, including environmental assessments and conducting surveys.

We spoke to Joanna about her new position:

What attracted you to Caledonian Climate? I completed my dissertation on the ecological impact of peatland restoration and learned about Caledonian Climate through this.

I then attended one of their Restoration Roadshows and got a chance to meet the team – everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic about the work. It seemed like the ideal place to work.

What are your ambitions for your role? I am keen to expand on my knowledge of peatlands built during my research, especially looking at the difference restoration can make to bog plant communities. I’m also looking forward to establishing my niche within the sector.

Describe Caledonian Climate in 3 words: Enthusiastic, dedicated, and informed.

About Caledonian Climate

Working responsibly with the custodians of Scotland’s beautiful countryside, Caledonian Climate is committed to tackling the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss.

To achieve this, we talk to forward-thinking businesses who want to fulfil their ambitions for carbon emission reductions through high-quality carbon credits with multiple co-benefits. We then partner them with landholders in the Scottish Highlands, maximising the ecological value and sustainability of their estates.

Building on our significant experience, and guided by a distinguished Advisory Board, Caledonian Climate is delivering the benchmark for long-term restoration of Scotland's degraded peatlands, locking away the carbon for good.

Our work also enhances biodiversity, improves water quality, boosts local economies and creates a compelling story for all of our partners to share.
