The Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance (CNCA) is an international network of leading cities working to achieve carbon neutrality well before 2050—the most aggressive GHG reduction targets undertaken by any cities in the world. The Alliance aims to address what it will take for leading global cities to achieve these deep emissions reductions, how they can work together to meet their respective goals more efficiently and effectively and demonstrate a path for other cities to follow. More information about CNCA can be found at http://carbonneutralcities.org. CNCA is a fiscally sponsored project of the Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN).
The Director works collaboratively with the CNCA Steering Committee, members, staff and fiscal agent to lead CNCA as an organization capable of delivering on its long-term vision and strategic goals. Specifically, the Director ensures that CNCA’s fiscal, operating, fundraising, communications, human resource, technology, and programmatic strategies are effectively implemented across the organization.
The ideal candidate will be both strategic and visionary, and skilled at leading effective implementation. They will have a demonstrated passion for deep decarbonization and the unique role that “climate vanguard cities” play. They will be invested in CNCA’s strategic vision—which was developed with and adopted by CNCA members in November 2020—and able to translate this vision into action and implementation.
