Climate Campaign Director, Mighty Earth UK

jeudi, 03 février 2022 12:32 Jobs

Mighty Earth, a global environmental campaign organisation, is accepting applications for a United Kingdom-based Climate Campaign Director for our initiative to transform the global meat industry and advance Nature and community solutions to climate change. The meat industry drives more climate pollution than all the cars, trucks, ships, and planes in the world, and is the leading cause of rainforest destruction, water pollution, and a key contributor to the displacement of Indigenous communities.

Building on our success in transforming other agricultural sectors, we are working to break the link between the meat industry and deforestation, drive a shift to regenerative agriculture, and support growth in alternative plant-based and cultivated protein.

If you are passionate about Nature and climate change, want to transform global agriculture to create a more sustainable food system, and work at a nimble and high-impact organisation, please apply.

Who we are: 

Mighty Earth is a global advocacy organisation working to defend a living planet. We are obsessed with impact: Our goal is to protect half of Earth for Nature and secure a climate that allows life to flourish. We aspire to be the most effective environmental organisation in the world.

Through our proven “perfect storm” model of driving change, we have played a leading role in persuading the world’s largest food and agriculture companies to act against deforestation land-grabbing human rights abuse, and driven adoption of multi-billion-dollar shifts to clean energy. We work to support Indigenous communities, communities of colour, and low-income communities through these efforts.
