The European Climate Foundation (ECF) was founded in 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to help tackle climate change by fostering the development of a low-carbon society at the national, European and global level.
We support over 280 partner organisations to carry out activities that contribute to the public debate on climate action, drive urgent and ambitious policy in support of the objectives of the Paris Agreement and help deliver a socially responsible transition to a net-zero emissions economy and sustainable society in Europe and around the world.
Context of the role
The buildings sector is responsible for 40% of final energy demand in Europe and 36% of emissions. The objective of the ECF’s building programme is to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon building stock by reducing energy demand of buildings while decarbonising the heating system, and doing so in a just, equitable and inclusive manner. This will require putting in place policies to phase out poor quality buildings and to power residents’ energy demands from low carbon heat supplies, aligning the interests of a broad set of stakeholders and ensuring well-designed financing mechanisms for the investment needed.
The Buildings programme is leading a 3 year project in the Netherlands, to engage with and mobilise home-owners and tenants to take measures to reduce energy demand and/or CO2 emissions in their homes. The post holder will lead this project, and interact with other partners and stakeholders. There will be direct engagement with other ECF programmes, partners and funders in developing and aligning activities.
She/he will report to the Director of the Buildings programme.
The position is for a 3 year project.
