EMPLOYMENT: Forest Risk Commodities Researcher, Global Canopy Program
The Forest Footprint Disclosure (FFD) project is designed to help investors identify how a company’s activities and supply chains contribute to deforestation and use this 'forest footprint' to assist in their evaluation of companies. Modelled on the Carbon Disclosure Project, it aims to shed light on the key commercial drivers of deforestation whilst building capacity and knowledge to reduce their impacts.
The project is part of the Global Canopy Programme (GCP), a tropical forest think-tank that acts through its global networks of experts across disciplines to spark insight, convene research and design projects that demonstrate the value of forests as natural capital and can help leverage future large-scale system change.
We are now looking for an experienced analyst with a passion for tropical forests to join our team to push forward thinking on forests, drivers and commodity risks – to provide companies and investors with sound evidence on which to base their shift to sustainable wealth creation.
Deadline: May 10, 2012
