Air pollution kills nearly 5 million people a year and makes millions more sick. The burden of air pollution and climate change falls the hardest on vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, and this work aims to create win-win solutions to relieve this burden and help business and the environment prosper.
To date, we’ve done a poor job measuring and communicating the significance of air pollution, making solutions hard to implement and evaluate. However, new insights about local air pollution will make the problem personal and the status quo untenable. Pollution levels, sources and health impacts will be traced to the source, identifying opportunities to slash pollution and creating accountability. Newly empowered champions will build the public, private and political support needed to take action to protect people and the environment. Because the best actions will protect health and mitigate the risk of climate change, local insights can provide the springboard for local, regional, national and even global impact through widespread adoption in peer-to-peer networks.
Under the supervision of a Senior Manager on the EDF+Business team, the Analyst will play a significant role in supporting EDF’s efforts to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution 25% by 2025. The Analyst will help conduct research, build the organization’s knowledge base, develop strong partnerships, and communicate internally and externally.
Working on a dynamic team with colleagues from across EDF, the Analyst will design and execute research projects targeted at businesses and other key audiences to define the value of understanding and acting to address both climate change and air pollution. Over time, the Analyst will help transform this research into opportunities for collaboration with leading companies, innovators, cities and networks to enable commitments and accountability to reduce harmful pollution. The Manager will also assist EDF+Business in expanding innovation projects and best practices to other EDF programs.
