Did you know that Transport & Environment has shaped some of Europe’s most important environmental laws? In recent years, T&E got the EU to set the world's most ambitious CO2 standards for cars and trucks but also helped uncover the Dieselgate scandal. We secured a global ban on dirty shipping fuels and the creation of the world's biggest carbon market for aviation - just to name a few. All this while coordinating projects and grants from international funders, cooperating with many colleagues across exciting policy topics, including 6 national offices across Europe. We’re now looking to hire a highly motivated person to join our operations team and help us to achieve even greater change in the future.
