Reports to: Chief Executive Officer
Location: Remote in California
Status: Full-Time with Benefits
Are you a passionate, accomplished, and innovative communications expert who wants to make a difference on climate change? We are looking for an experienced professional to develop, coordinate, and participate in the execution of a strategic communications campaign in support of our Climate-Safe California initiative. The communications campaign must build awareness, credibility, and influence with people who can help us achieve our bold policy goals: individual and institutional funders, state and local elected officials, activists, and climate leader partners. In this newly created position, you will report directly to the CEO of The Climate Center.
About The Climate Center
The Climate Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, works to deliver speed and scale greenhouse gas reductions, starting in California. Founded in 2001, The Climate Center played a key role in the tremendous growth of Community Choice Agencies (CCAs). CCAs grew from two to 20 over the past six years and now provide 88% clean electricity to over 11 million Californians.
The Climate Center has launched a bold, science-based campaign, Climate-Safe California, to accelerate equitable climate policy timelines in California, catalyzing other states, our nation, and countries around the world to greater action for a climate-safe future.
Our goal is that California, the world’s fifth-largest economy, doubles emissions cuts and starts drawdown for net-negative emissions (sequestration greater than emissions) by 2030. Climate-Safe California policies and programs, guided by these key principles, must: (1) be based on the latest science, (2) ensure a just transition for workers, their families, and their communities, that are dependent on fossil fuel industries, and (3) ensure that lower-income communities and communities of color are no longer disproportionately harmed by the production and use of fossil fuels and have equitable access to climate-friendly solutions.
