Job - Programme Assistant, Finance and Economics
The European Climate Foundation (ECF) was established in 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to promote climate and energy policies that greatly reduce Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions and to help Europe play a stronger international leadership role to mitigate climate change. The ECF is funded by major multi-year commitments from donors in Europe and the United States. The ECF is part of the international ClimateWorks Network that shares goals, strategies and resources to address the global challenge of climate change mitigation with a global network of aligned organisations.
The ECF team is a highly dynamic group of individuals, combining ambition and passion with a rigorous, results-oriented and analytic approach to work. The ECF’s culture is one of intensity, enthusiasm and mutual support.
Finance and Economics at ECF
The Finance and Economics cluster at the ECF is a new venture, focusing specifically on the catalytic role of private sector finance in the low-carbon transition in Europe. We work across the ECF programmes and with our grantee partners on two broad workstreams:
- Deepening the understanding of future stranded-asset risks in carbon-intensive investments and thus contributing to the financing shift away from high-carbon activities; and
- Improving investor familiarity with low-carbon finance as well as reducing or removing the various regulatory, policy and market-design obstacles to the rollout of low-carbon finance at scale in European markets.
Our work proceeds from a deep understanding of private sector finance and its interactions with government policy at both a national and European level.
Location: Berlin, Germany
Start date: As soon as practicable
