Low Emission Standards Lead – Industrial Transition Accelerator (ITA)

Are you passionate about developing innovative solutions to the climate crisis and supercharging industrial decarbonisation? Are you interested in being a foundational member of a new organisation? 
If yes, then apply to join our growing team.

The Mission Possible Partnership (MPP) is a movement of climate leaders in business and civil society driving industrial decarbonisation across the entire value chain of the world’s highest-emitting sectors: aluminum, cement, chemicals, steel, aviation, shipping, and trucking. MPP is charting the inventive steps and radical collaboration to enable commercial-scale First Projects in this decisive decade.

The Industrial Transition Accelerator (ITA) is a global multistakeholder initiative created to catalyse decarbonisation across the heavy emitting sectors. With expansive networks across industry, financial institutions, and governments, it brings together global leaders to unlock investment at scale, for the rapid deployment of decarbonisation solutions. Within three years, it aims to significantly grow the pipeline of commercial-scale, clean industrial projects to reduce emissions by 2030 and enable delivery of Paris Agreement-aligned ambition for heavy emitting industry and transport sectors.

Launched in December 2023 at the COP28 World Climate Action Summit, the ITA works in partnership with global institutions, global corporate and finance conveners, and sectoral industry groups among others to speed up collective action. Its Secretariat is hosted by the Mission Possible

  • Developed experience with stakeholder engagement.
  • Experience interacting with senior executives.
  • Collaborative team player, with strong interpersonal and relationship management skills.
  • Ability to develop and nurture trusting relationships and partnerships with a range of stakeholders (inc. senior executives) from different organisational and geographical horizons.

  • Bachelor’s or equivalent degree.
Additional Desirable Requirements:

  • Convene standard-setting organisations and other stakeholders to undertake shared approaches where needed, leveraging the ITA’s network and resources to facilitate engagement.
  • Oversee and ensure accountability of standard-setting organisations and/or other partners where they have been contracted to complete deliverables for the workstream.
