Better World Group Advisors
Clean Air, Climate Justice and Transport Associate
Better World Group is seeking a full-time associate. This position is national in scope and and can be based anywhere within the U.S.
The associate will join a dynamic team across the firm’s practice areas: Clean Air, Climate Justice and Transport practice area. We aim to change systems by transforming culture to bring benefits, resources, and economic opportunities, to communities of color, especially communities that continue to face climate and environmental injustice. In California and nationally, the transportation sector is one of the largest contributors of greenhouse gas emissions and harmful air pollutants, disproportionally impacting low-income communities and communities of color. When air quality is poor, heatwaves and other extreme weather events can make the air we breathe even more hazardous. Clean air can reduce the exacerbating effects of air pollution on extreme weather events, helping communities adapt more effectively to climate change.
Our firm works with state-wide and national partners to transition transport across all sectors towards a zero-emission, electric future. To mitigate climate change and improve air quality, we aim to bring clean air to those suffering from decades of environmental injustice by leading state policy campaigns in order to accelerator clean air, climate justice and transport policies.
