CDP is seeking a highly motivated, flexible technical officer who thrives in a fast paced, varied and autonomous environment. This is an exciting opportunity to deliver climate change theme corporate reporting within CDP, including helping development of our strategy for developing cross-sector, sector-specific (such as metals & mining, steel, cement and chemicals sectors), and supply chain questionnaires to companies and associated guidance. You will co-ordinate such strategies with our scoring and data teams as well as other stakeholders within and outside CDP. You will be part of the Technical Team, which supports the development of questionnaires, scoring methodologies and guidance for companies reporting environmental information to investors and customers. You will report to the Director of Technical Reporting.
CDP’s Reimagining Disclosure programme is an ambitious programme of change over the next 3 years with the development of sector specific questionnaires and assessments, and a new disclosure IT platform to collect nearly 10,000 business responses to questions on climate, water and deforestation, as well as on their supply chains. You will be helping to deliver this evolution, supporting the Director of Technical Reporting in leading the team by focussing on sectors in the financial services and construction industries.
In helping to develop these areas, you will need to find a balance between completeness, transparency and quality of disclosure on the one hand, with the practicality, resulting effort and lead time for companies to collect and collate new data sets in their organization and throughout their value chain.
This is an excellent opportunity to enhance your project management skills and make an impact globally to how companies respond to the key environmental challenges of climate change, water and deforestation.
