Position Title: U.S. Policy Manager, Zero-Carbon Fuels and Transportation Decarbonization
Reports To: Director, CATF Transportation Decarbonization Project
Type: Full-time position
Location: Remote; flexible within the U.S.; Washington, D.C. preferred
Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is a nonprofit organization working to safeguard against the worst impacts of climate change by catalyzing the rapid global development and deployment of low-carbon energy and other climate-protecting technologies. This is accomplished through research and analysis, public advocacy leadership, and partnership with the private sector. CATF is highly respected for its deep expertise and research on energy and industrial systems and potential strategies, technologies, and policies that can radically shrink their impact on the planet’s atmosphere. Our team of 100+ experts and advocates (and global network of subject matter experts and civil society partners) put this research and knowledge into action by designing and enacting public policies that drive toward zero emissions. We also support policies and work directly with private industry to innovate in technology to make the path to zero emissions swift and affordable. CATF is headquartered in Boston, and has offices in Washington D.C. and Brussels with staff working virtually around world.
The role of the U.S. Policy Manager, Zero-Carbon Fuels and Transportation Decarbonization is to develop and advocate for policies in the U.S. that promote: demonstration and scaling of zero-carbon fuels (ZCF) production (i.e., low-emissions hydrogen and ammonia), the development of storage and transport infrastructure for ZCFs, and the use of ZCFs in multiple end use sectors (particularly the heavy transportation sector) that may need ZCFs to decarbonize. In addition, the Policy Manager will develop and advocate for policies specific to decarbonizing the transportation sector, such as a Zero-Carbon Fuel Standard (ZCFS) or Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Mandates. Policy education and advocacy will be primarily conducted at the U.S. federal and state level. Substantive policy work includes monitoring and evaluating existing policies and policy concepts as well as developing new policies. This work will be undertaken in collaboration with multiple teams within CATF, and this role will split their time and focus between CATF’s Zero-Carbon Fuels work and its Transportation Decarbonization work, which are heavily connected. It will also include collaboration with allied NGO, business, expert, and government-based stakeholders.
