With world attention on both the environment and the economy, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is where policymakers and business leaders turn for win-win solutions. By focusing on strong science, uncommon partnerships and market-based approaches, we tackle urgent threats with practical solutions. We are one of the world's largest environmental organizations, with more than two million members and a staff of approximately 700 scientists, economists, policy experts, and other professionals around the world. We operate in 22 geographies with unique projects running across four programs. You will be part of a vibrant workplace where innovation and results are a way of life. EDF envisions a world in which people from all backgrounds and experiences feel connected to the environmental challenges we face and are engaged in creating durable, equitable solutions. We seek talented candidates who share our--Core Values --of Respect, Results, Innovation, Optimism, and Integrity, and support our Commitment to Diversity . Location NY preferred or any EDF US office (Austin, TX; Boston; Washington, D.C.; Boulder, CO; Raleigh, NC; San Francisco, CA) The goal of the EDF Energy Program 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 favor of change. In achieving our objectives, we facilitate cutting-edge science, technical innovation, and rigorous economic and financial analysis to develop durable solutions. EDF's Energy program seeks to reduce oil and gas methane emissions 45% from 2012 levels by the end of 2025. Our long-term vision is that effective government policies and industry practices will virtually eliminate methane emissions from the global oil and gas industry, thereby reducing total anthropogenic methane emissions by approximately one-third. Our goal of reducing oil and gas methane emissions 45% by 2025 represents a first, critical step toward achieving this vision. The MethaneSAT project, run through EDF's wholly owned subsidiary MethaneSAT LLC (MethaneSAT), will be able to locate, measure, and monitor global methane emissions and is an essential tool to win this fight. We will succeed only if we leverage data procured from MethaneSAT to secure meaningful emissions reductions from those with the power to act.
