By working closely with project owners and developers as well as their local communities, we manage the complete registration, verification and evaluation of carbon projects to enable the issuance of emission-reduction certificates, in line with official carbon standards. If you are a smart, ambitious and dynamic sustainability professional with a strong passion to make a real difference in the fight against climate change, the below position may be right for you!
About the Role
In the Australian Carbon Projects Development Coordinator role, you will oversee the timely, effective generation and delivery of environmental products such as emission reductions or renewable energy certificates. You will be part of the global project development team – particularly on the technical, project/methodological supervisory and capacity building topics – and you will support the sourcing and business development team of the Projects & Markets (P&M) unit. You will ensure that the projects are implemented as agreed while delivering high-quality deliverable.
The project topics will particularly include forestry and landscape mitigation and removals (e.g. REDD+, ARR, sustainable/regenerative agriculture projects, peat-land/wetland, Blue Carbon, beef cattle herd management) or other project types (e.g. Renewable and energy efficiency, bio-gas, waste and circularity etc.). You will collaborate with other members of the global project development team, particularly the global AFOLU team and other teams/units within South Pole when deemed necessary.
The Australian Carbon Projects Development Coordinator position requires qualifications for the design and development of climate mitigation projects. This concerns the AFOLU sector in particular and the energy sector in general. It includes such experiences as working with local communities and private owners, MRV systems, developing carbon estimations and delivering high quality products (project documents, monitoring reports, and others). You will assist in the audit process for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions and participate in business rounds, technical sessions and in different events as required.
