World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks aSustainable Infrastructure Research Intern.
According to projections, 75% of the infrastructure in 2050 is yet to be built. Ambitious infrastructure plans to connect countries and markets pose enormous threats to the world’s vulnerable communities and biodiversity and are on a track to increase greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change. WWF is developing a new strategic framework to guide its future efforts in helping shift global infrastructure development onto a more sustainable path. The internship will support the process of developing this strategy and a subsequent action program by carrying out research, developing databases and preparing reference guides for WWF offices around the world working on advocacy, policy, community engagement, technical design, spatial and economic planning, monitoring, etc. in relation to driving standards, practices and norms toward sustainability in infrastructure development. (‘Infrastructure’ in this process includes natural/green/ecological infrastructure as well as human engineered infrastructure (roads, railways, ports, dams, energy production and delivery systems, water management and delivery systems, etc.).
World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a graduate-level International Climate Business Intern for the spring semester.
Addressing the challenge of climate change and creating a low-carbon, climate-resilient future for people and wildlife is a global priority for WWF. Rapidly accelerating the deployment of clean, renewable energy is a crucial aspect of our ambitious climate and energy strategy.
Under the supervision of the Director, International Corporate Climate Partnerships, the intern will support WWF’s work to transform energy markets through corporate engagement.
The ICCP program focuses on creating and scaling high-impact corporate engagement initiatives to accelerate a low-carbon transition. The program works closely with companies, WWF offices in priority markets, and other stakeholders to promote climate action beyond the United States. The program’s current priorities are to help scale demand for, and access to, renewable energy by corporations in Mexico, India and China.
