Climate change is one of the existential crises of our times, and the question remains: how much hotter are we going to let it get?
Founded at the University of Chicago, Climate Vault’s mission is to help organizations and individuals voluntarily reduce their carbon footprints and foster innovation in carbon removal. Climate Vault is a Delaware-incorporated non-stock, non-profit organization with a pending 501(c)(3) tax-exempt application.
Building on our early success, we are building our team to have an even greater impact. As a fast-growing non-profit startup, we are searching for flexible go-getters who welcome the challenges of a growing organization. Culture is important to us - from the ground up we are building on our culture of pragmatic high-speed forward movement and getting (important) things done.
This is your opportunity to be part of a great team that is building something significant and making an impact on stopping climate change.
We are looking for an Industry Analyst who is an expert on carbon dioxide as it relates to climate change. This person will be Climate Vault’s internal expert on offset strategies, cap and trade markets, and CO2 removal technologies. In addition to having a strong background, they will stay at the cutting edge of advances in solutions and technologies in this space. They will work to establish Climate Vault’s POV with other internal stakeholders, and then support Climate Vault’s activities by producing thought leadership content, interacting with potential donors and other industry influencers.
For someone who understands that we need to reduce carbon emissions now and also remove existing carbon emissions from the atmosphere - this is your dream job. Building on their knowledge of the landscape - in terms of technologies, players and issues - you support Climate Vault’s process of reducing emission through the cap and trade markets as well as supporting CDR technologies. This includes all aspects of the mission, from working with certification bodies and industry associations to coordinating with Climate Vault’s Tech Chamber, technology auditors, and the management team. This role includes research, analysis, and the direct output of content that explains, contrasts, and supports Climate Vault’s approach - bringing clarity to a diverse range of internal and external parties.
The ideal candidate for this position has more than ten years of experience exploring and understanding climate change causes and solutions. You are passionately interested in Climate Vault’s mission: to slow and stop climate change. Your adaptability, informed confidence, and strong communication skills will be key to success in this role. We provide a unique opportunity to be part of a team of brilliant and experienced individuals and leaders.
