Manager, Client Strategy

About NativeEnergy

Our aim is to increase global carbon reduction capacity by building new climate action projects and we are currently seeking a results-oriented professional to join our team.

NativeEnergy is a leading provider of high-quality GHG emission reduction and renewable energy investments for leaders in corporate sustainability. Through our innovative HelpBuildTM project model, NativeEnergy has enabled leading companies to invest in creating over 70 new and brand-relevant climate projects that provide meaningful social and ecosystem benefits to communities around the world. We are currently launching three first-of-their-kind soil carbon sequestration projects in the U.S., Argentina and Kenya, reaching millions of acres. We created a renewable energy credit mechanism that channels corporate REC purchases into building new, community-scale renewable generation. And we are on track to launch sugar and cotton supply chain climate action projects in the coming months. All in concert with a core, and growing, group of leading brands.

With this success, NativeEnergy wants to invest in more HelpBuild projects. Our business model focuses on custom projects for leading brands. We uniquely construct project portfolios to meet climate goals, drive business value for companies, and deliver tangible benefits to their stakeholder communities – from customers and suppliers to employees and shareholders. Our investment model enables companies to put their sustainability strategies into practice, by investing in new climate action and ecosystem service projects in their supply sheds.
