Job purpose and background
Are you looking to join the global race to stabilise both the environment and the economy? Are you looking for a role that combines your professional experience with an ethical focus?
CDP is where business leaders, financiers and policymakers turn for innovative, systemic solutions. This is an exciting, impact-oriented role working on globally significant issues – the climate and nature crises. You will be responsible for leading the development and delivery of CDP’s work to catalyse the adoption of Science-Based Targets by companies and cities at scale. Ultimately, you will be working to put climate and nature at the heart of business and city decision-making.
