We are looking for two self-motivated climate professionals with strong experience working in the field of climate and decarbonisation and/or experience investor stewardship practices and proxy voting to help ensure the success of Climate Action 100+ and IIGCC’s wider corporate programme. We are recruiting for two roles with one at Associate Director level and a second at Senior Manager level.

IIGCC is a co-founder of the Climate Action 100+ initiative. Climate Action 100+ is an investor initiative launched in 2017 to ensure the world’s 160 largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters take necessary action on climate change. More than 450 investors with over $40 trillion in assets collectively under management are engaging companies to curb emissions, improve governance and strengthen climate-related financial disclosures. IIGCC supports investors with their corporate engagement in Europe carried out as part of Climate Action 100+.

Through its corporate programme IIGCC supports investors with engagement and assessment with companies on how they are managing climate risks and supporting the goals of the Paris Agreement. The programme is currently delivering the following workstreams:
• Sectors – Identifying the pathways, actions and investments required to accelerate the net zero transition overall for critical sectors and technologies
• Companies – Ensuring companies in critical sectors to the low carbon transition develop credible strategies through initiatives such as Climate Action 100+
to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and manage climate related financial risks
• Investors – Enabling investors to develop best practice investment strategies and tools that support securing changes in company activities (e.g. such as voting practices) and ensuring supportive regulation

Reporting to IIGCC’s Corporate Programme Director, and working closely with IIGCC’s CEO and wider team, the roles will be involved in all three of the programme workstreams. Depending on experience, expertise and how these complement the existing team’s skill set, your responsibilities will be tailored across the three workstreams. For example, a candidate with strong proxy voting experience may take the lead on the Investor workstream while a candidate with strong sectoral decarbonisation knowledge may take the lead on the Sectors workstream.

The successful candidates will be involved in supporting the Climate Action 100+ initiative at global and European level. The successful candidates will also be involved in convening IIGCC working group meetings and members’ events and developing research papers for investors on a range of themes.

Please see the job description here for detailed overview of the role including tasks and responsibilities.
