We work with some of the world’s biggest brands – including Honda, Toyota, GSK, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Kingfisher, and many more – to help them reduce the emissions in their global supply chains. Much of this is delivered through the M2030 platform, used by thousands of suppliers to track and reduce carbon and other environmental impacts.

We’re now on the hunt for a bright, enthusiastic, and motivated Environment & Carbon Adviser to join our Climate Action Program.

Role overview:

The M2030 Climate Action Program provides access to best practices, events, training, funding, and great technologies, all aimed at helping thousands of our customers to accelerate the changes needed within their businesses to reduce environmental impacts. To do this, the program uses a mix of in-house skills and a growing global network of external partners. This program is provided to all those businesses utilizing the M2030 platform.

As a Environment & Carbon Adviser you’ll join the team that designs and delivers this program.

Responsibilities:

Researching & updating our actionable good practice database:

With the aim of helping businesses across the globe reduce environmental impacts, we have compiled hundreds of actionable good practice templates that can be implemented to improve. You’ll take responsibility for updating and improving this database.

Conducting a mix of desk-based research, and interviews with practitioners & industry experts, to do so. In addition, data being input by our growing customer base can be analysed to further improve the quality of these templates.

For example: If good practice is to install solar panels on the roof of factories – you would help research & list when this might/might not be appropriate; important considerations like insurance risk & access; lessons learnt by practitioners who had already installed panels; likely return on investment periods, and much more.

Identifying carbon emission factors & benchmarks:

We provide a growing number of carbon emission calculators & benchmarks in our software platform. Many of these rely on emission factors that need updating annually for every country we operate in. You’ll assume responsibility for managing this. In addition, when we create new reports and calculators, you will lead research and sourcing the best available new factors/benchmarks to use.

You’ll run a series on internal briefing sessions across a number of topical areas.
For example, what are the implications for our American customers of the forthcoming US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) climate reporting regulations.
