Energy Transition Overview
The goal of the Energy Transition Team is to bend the curve on greenhouse gas emissions from oil and gas production and use by 2030, while meeting the world's energy needs cleanly and equitably. We are achieving this through a defined set of objectives targeted at 1) reducing emissions from oil and gas production, delivery and use, and 2) reducing demand for oil and gas in power generation, transportation, buildings and industry. To achieve our goal, we seek reforms in law, regulation, and/or business practice through a set of strategic corporate partnerships, direct engagement with policymakers and mobilizing investor and public sentiment in favour of change. In achieving our objectives, we facilitate cutting-edge science, technical innovation, and rigorous economic and financial analysis to develop durable solutions.
The Senior Communications Manager for Energy Transition is responsible for developing and executing public relations strategies to raise awareness of Environmental Defense Fund's methane work in key Member States. We are seeking an experienced media strategist who can craft compelling narratives, effective messaging and aggressively communicate our solutions and brand to target audiences through earned, owned- and paid content. They will manage and align European marketing communications plans with the broader Global Energy Transition Communications strategy to advance the goals of Environmental Defense Fund's global methane campaign.
They will bring a broad view of the energy landscape in Europe--its actors, government officials, corporations and others--and are capable of constructing and pitching the narratives that effectively frame our issue and position Environmental Defense Fund in the region. This person builds strategic relationships with influential media, opinion makers and other key stakeholders in order to advance Environmental Defense Fund's methane thought leadership.
The Senior Manager reports to the Associate Vice President of Communications, Energy Transition and works closely with the Environmental Defense Fund Europe's Head of Communications to devise plans that push our methane advocacy and help raise our regional profile.
