Environmental Defense Fund
With world attention focused on both the environment and the economy, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is where policymakers and business leaders turn for win-win solutions. This leading green group, with programs from Boston to Beijing, has tripled in size over the past decade by focusing on strong science, uncommon partnerships and market-based approaches. You can be part of a vibrant workplace that welcomes diverse perspectives, talents and contributions, where innovation and a focus on results are a way of life.
EDF Climate Corps is Environmental Defense Fund’s innovative summer fellowship program that places specially trained MBA and MPA students in companies, cities and universities to build the business case for energy efficiency. If improving building energy efficiency were as simple as flipping a switch, organizations could easily cash in on big cost savings and emission reductions. Unfortunately, limited resources, information gaps and organizational barriers prevent many organizations from taking advantage of smart energy investments. EDF Climate Corps overcomes these barriers with ambitious young talent trained to develop customized energy efficiency investment plans for their host organizations. Since the program’s launch in 2008, EDF Climate Corps fellows have uncovered over a billion dollars in energy savings for participating organizations.
The Program Coordinator reports to the Senior Manager, EDF Climate Corps Operations, and plays a key role in EDF Climate Corps, which has ambitious plans to scale up over the next five years. The Program Coordinator’s primary responsibilities are to recruit fellows and host organizations, manage summer fellowships and lead key operational processes such as pre-fellowship preparations and the vetting of fellowship results. The Program Coordinator works closely with the rest of the EDF Climate Corps team to deliver a consistently high quality fellowship experience for hosts and fellows, and to leverage the results and relationships developed through EDS Climate Corps to advance EDF’s climate and energy goals.
For the Program Coordinator position, we are seeking a highly organized and analytical self-starter with a demonstrated interest in corporate sustainability and/or environmental issues. Specific qualifications include:
