Full time Green Jobs Non-Profit Jobs

Job Description

Based in Seoul, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is an intergovernmental organization founded to support and promote a model of economic growth known as “green growth”, which targets key aspects of economic performance such a poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. In the newly approved Strategy 2030, GGGI is driven by the vision of “a low-carbon, resilient world of strong, inclusive, and sustainable growth”. 

This year, GGGI has a budget of USD 56 million and operations in 33 countries that produce approximately 100 green growth policy advisory outputs, 35 adopted green growth policies, and 70 knowledge products as well as mobilizing approximately USD 700 million in committed green and climate finance per annum. By 2030, GGGI will grow to at least 50 countries if it can mobilize revenues on the order of USD100-110 million per annum. At this scale, GGGI targets to mobilize over USD16 billion in green and climate finance commitments for its members. Our ex-ante impact assessment shows that GGGI would support its members to reduce emissions by an estimated one Gigaton of CO2e, generate 2 million green jobs and provide sustainable services to 100 million people.
