CO2 Value Europe (CVE) is a non-profit industry-driven association dedicated to Carbon Capture and Utilisation ‎‎(CCU), also called recycling of CO2. Our mission is to promote the development and market deployment of ‎sustainable industrial solutions that convert CO2 into valuable products such as fuels, chemicals or construction ‎materials, in order to contribute to the net reduction of global CO2 emissions and to the replacement of fossil ‎feedstock by renewable feedstock. It is the only association in Europe entirely dedicated to the subject, gathering ‎more than 70 stakeholders from all the relevant sectors of the CO2 value chain: CO2 emitters from all significant ‎process and energy intensive industries, providers of renewable energy and hydrogen, CO2 conversion technology ‎developers, and users of CO2-based products. CVE is committed to build up an integrated vision and action plan to ‎develop CO2 utilisation into a new industrial sector, to integrate the efforts of the many different players involved ‎in the value chain and to become the ambassador of the CO2 utilisation community towards policy makers and ‎funders. To support its development, we are seeking to recruit a Policy and Advocacy Manager.


The European Green Deal has set very ambitious climate goals for Europe accompanied with a very complex ‎regulatory framework to support the realisation of these goals. The Policy & Advocacy Manager will play a key ‎role in developing and implementing the policy and advocacy strategy of the Association. She/He will support the ‎positioning of the Association on important regulatory issues and liaise with relevant stakeholders to advocate for ‎CVE’s positions. Also, She/He will support policy activities in several EU projects where CVE is a partner. She/He ‎will be closely working with the Communications Team and will be referring to the Secretary General.‎
