Corporate Climate Campaign Director

About Stand.earth
Stand.earth
is a nonprofit environmental organization working to create a world where respect for people and the environment comes first. Our campaigns challenge destructive corporate and governmental practices, demand accountability, and create solutions that support all of us — and the environment and climate we depend upon. Stand.earth’s strategic approach and fierce determination have yielded extraordinary results: since 1999, we have secured the protection of 65 million acres of wilderness, shifted billions of dollars of corporate purchasing toward responsible options, and changed the environmental practices of more than 100 major U.S. corporations. We are a leading voice in the effort to protect our communities, climate, and environment from the risks associated with outdated, climate-polluting energy. Stand.earth operates in the United States and Canada.

Stand.earth recognizes and respects the sovereignty of First Nations and tribes, as well as the rights of indigenous people and frontline communities. These communities are often first and most directly impacted, and they provide critical leadership in developing solutions.

Stand.earth is an equal opportunity employer; we have a strong commitment to equity and inclusion, and value the leadership and skills of people from diverse backgrounds. People of color, LGBTQ persons, and people from other historically marginalized backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Location:
While the preferred location for this position is in one of our hub offices in Bellingham, WA; San Francisco, CA; or Vancouver, BC, we will consider outstanding candidates in remote locations.

THE POSITION
Stand.earth
is seeking a seasoned corporate/markets campaign expert to lead the strategic development, management, and execution of corporate campaigns focused on reining in the climate pollution of rogue industries and corporations.

Stand.earth is leading a campaign focused on the shipping industry, which is not covered in any international climate agreement and emissions currently account for 5% of global GHG emissions; emissions are predicted to rise to 17% by 2050, making this is a critical sector in the work towards a climate safe future. Our campaign launched in 2016 with a focus on the cruise ship industry leader, Carnival Cruise Lines.

Earlier this year, we launched a campaign focused on reducing the carbon footprint of the apparel industry. Our campaign is targeting lead denim companies.

This position will be based in Bellingham, WA; Seattle, WA; or Vancouver, BC. Remote locations will be considered under extraordinary circumstances.

This is a full-time position with excellent benefits. Salary will be commensurate with experience. While our work is dynamic and fast-paced, we have a strong commitment to building a culture of mindfulness, support and respect. We seek someone who shares those values.
