Stand.earth

About​ ​Stand.earth Stand.earth (formerly ForestEthics) is a nonprofit environmental organization working to create a world where respect for people and the environment comes first. Our campaigns challenge destructive corporate and governmental practices and create solutions that support all of us — and the environment we depend upon. Stand.earth’s strategic approach and fierce determination have yielded extraordinary results: since 1999, we have secured the protection of 65 million acres of wilderness, shifted billions of dollars of corporate purchasing toward responsible options, and changed the environmental practices of more than 100 major U.S. corporations. We are a leading voice in the effort to protect our communities, climate, and environment from the risks associated with outdated, climate-polluting​ ​energy.​ ​​Stand.earth​ ​operates​ ​in​ ​the​ ​United​ ​States​ ​and​ ​Canada.

Stand.earth recognizes and respects the sovereignty of First Nations and tribes, as well as the rights of indigenous people and frontline communities. These communities are often first and most directly impacted,​ ​and​ ​they​ ​provide​ ​critical​ ​leadership​ ​in​ ​developing​ ​solutions.


Stand.earth ​is an equal opportunity employer; we have a strong commitment to equity and inclusion, and value the leadership and skills of people from diverse backgrounds. People of color, LGBTQ persons, and​ ​people​ ​from​ ​other​ ​historically​ ​marginalized​ ​backgrounds​ ​are​ ​encouraged​ ​to​ ​apply.

Full time
The​ ​Position Stand.earth is seeking a passionate corporate/markets campaigner to hold two rogue industries, fashion and​ ​shipping,​ ​accountable​ ​for​ ​their​ ​climate​ ​emissions. The apparel industry has a massive impact on the world’s climate, accounting for approximately 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions and is the second dirtiest industry in the world. That's second only to Big Oil. Although the manufacturing of clothing accounts for 60-75% of the industry’s overall carbon emissions, apparel brands are not held responsible for these emissions. The focus of our campaign is to hold the fashion industry accountable for its carbon and environmental footprint both at home and abroad​ ​where​ ​most​ ​products​ ​are​ ​manufactured. Shipping is not covered in any international climate agreement and emissions currently account for 5% of global GHG emissions; emissions are predicted to rise to 17% by 2050, making this is a critical sector in the work towards a climate safe future. Our shipping campaign is focused on cruise ships, specifically Carnival​ ​Cruise​ ​Lines. Reporting to the Climate campaign director, this position is responsible for developing and implementing the campaign strategy, conducting corporate and issue research, communicating through traditional and digital channels with key audiences, recruiting and engaging activists, coordinating with allies, and executing actions. This position will work closely with the development and digital teams, and must have a strong interest and/or commitment to Stand.earth’s values. While our work is dynamic and fast-paced, we have a strong commitment to building a culture of mindfulness, support and respect. We seek​ ​someone​ ​who​ ​shares​ ​those​ ​values. This​ ​is​ ​a​ ​full-time​ ​exempt​ ​position​ ​with​ ​excellent​ ​benefits.​ ​Starting​ ​salary​ ​range​ ​is​ ​50K​ ​-​ ​65K.
