SUMMARY: Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF) is seeking a talented intern to help direct and further our work in reducing energy-related carbon emissions, also known as decarbonization, in the affordable housing sector. SAHF and its members are longstanding leaders in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation. Building off the successes of our ambitious Big Reach initiative, SAHF is beginning to explore pathways towards a low-carbon future. A key lesson from the Big Reach initiative that was the value of a time-bound portfolio-wide goal for achieving significant change in systems and practices around energy efficiency – members achieved 29% energy savings and 24% water savings in 2020 against their 2010 baseline. In 2022, SAHF will develop tools and methodologies for setting portfolio-wide carbon emission baselines and a decarbonization roadmap, so that SAHF members and affordable housing practitioners at large can set and achieve ambitious carbon reduction goals needed to ensure a healthy, equitable and climate-resilient future.
