Global Coordinator on Decarbonization at Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)


The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a non-profit environmental advocacy organization. We use law, science, and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet’s wildlife and wild places and to ensure the rights of all people to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America’s bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations. Today, our staff of more than 700 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy advocates, communications experts, and others work across the United States and internationally from our offices in New York; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Santa Monica; San Francisco; Bozeman, Montana; and Beijing.

Position Summary:

NRDC is seeking a Global Coordinator on Decarbonization to work with the International team in our Washington, DC office. The strategist will engage with the U.S. government to push for ending financial and diplomatic support for fossil fuel-related infrastructure, particularly LNG exports. They will also coordinate globally with groups in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and elsewhere to help elevate international voices for decarbonization and opposition to fossil fuel infrastructure, and to challenge corporations engaged in the fossil fuel supply chain in the United States and abroad.

The Strategist will also advocate for sustainable growth and restrictions on fossil fuels with key U.S. institutions including the State Department, Development Finance Corporation and Export Import Bank, and engage in international energy diplomacy efforts. The work will support NRDC’s efforts with the U.S. administration to address fossil fuel infrastructure overseas, and to scale up deployment of clean energy overseas. The Strategist will have familiarity and experience leading global campaigns and working with partners in several countries. The work will support the goal of shifting America’s investments overseas from dirty energy to clean energy investments, build global awareness of the research and data on stranded asset risks from fossil fuel infrastructure, inform the public of the high emissions impact of fossil fuel infrastructure (particularly LNG), and help drive U.S. investments in clean energy abroad.
