Fall Internship 2018 Organization  Ceres is a sustainability nonprofit organization working with the most influential investors and companies to build leadership and drive solutions throughout the economy. Through our powerful networks and advocacy, we tackle the world’s biggest sustainability challenges, including climate change, water scarcity and pollution, and human rights abuses.   For more information about Ceres, please visit our web site ( www.ceres.org ).   We are seeking dynamic, committed interns who would find it exciting to join the Ceres team!   General Internship Information   Ceres’ interns support Program, Communications, and Development staff working with a wide variety of constituents within the Ceres network: environmental activists, investors, funders, and corporations. While providing some administrative support, interns will primarily work in one of the following areas using skills in research, project coordination, IT and communications.  Detailed descriptions of each available position can be found below.     Each fall internship position requires 10 to 15 hours of work per week.  Schedules can be flexible to fit with class and/or work schedules.  Ceres compensates interns at a rate of $13.50 hour.  Our Fall Internship Program runs from September 2018 through mid-December 2018.     Please read details of each position on our website and apply for the specific internship you are interested in.

Transportation is also a significant contributor to carbon emissions. In fact, in 2016, the transportation sector surpassed the electric power sector as the largest emitter of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the United States, accounting for 28% of GHG emissions – more emissions than any other nation's entire economy, with the exception of China.   To adequately reduce emissions associated with the transportation sector, we need to focus on three components: vehicles, fuels and infrastructure. In the next year, Ceres’ Transportation Program's primary focus will be on promoting clean fuels, vehicles and relevant policies, and increasing corporate uptake and deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) and EV charging stations. Fall 2018 projects will include advocating for Low Carbon Fuel Standards, supporting passenger vehicles and truck fuel economy standards, and promoting advanced technology vehicles.
