Over the past four years, the Carbon War Room has established itself for our unique approach to battling climate change. This is a time for action. What we do, or do not do, to address climate change in the next ten years will affect life on earth for centuries.

Current positions

There does not have to be a choice between the economy and the environment to meet our 2020 goal of 17 gigatons of absolute carbon reductions. And we have some pretty good ideas about how to make that happen. But what separates great ideas from action with the potential to change the world are the people who bring them to life. We're a small and efficient staff of 15, and because of our size, every person plays an essential role in the organization. If you are interested in joining us as we implement the entrepreneurial change needed to reduce carbon at speed and scale, apply to the positions below. All Candidates must live in Washington DC - New York City or London to be considered. Relocation is not provided
