Sustainability Advisor – Net Zero Carbon Buildings

Posting date: Friday 28th May 2021

Application deadline: Applications will be assessed from 7 June 2021 onwards, until the right candidate has been appointed.

The built environment industry is accelerating its action on decarbonisation and this role offers the chance to play a leading role in identifying and agreeing the necessary performance targets and verification routes. This is an industry facing role that requires both technical knowledge of low carbon buildings and experience of stakeholder engagement and collaborative working. The Advisor will lead major projects in 2021/22 to identify and agree performance targets (operational energy and embodied carbon) and routes for the verification or certification of net zero carbon buildings.

This role offers a fantastic opportunity to contribute significantly to the building sectors’ net zero transition and to gain valuable experience working with leading businesses and other stakeholders, whilst working with a passionate, knowledgeable, and growing team of colleagues at UKGBC

This project will build on the success of UKGBC’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings Framework Definition and existing UK energy/carbon reporting schemes to ensure it drives real impact in the market. The project will link with existing pieces of work, including UKGBC’s Whole Life Carbon Roadmap project, and will require close engagement with professional institutions, UKGBC members, and the wider industry, including in the run up to COP26.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about sustainability in the built environment, have strong stakeholder engagement skills, knowledge of zero carbon buildings and global green building certification tools, a positive can-do attitude, and be able to thrive in a busy working environment. You will report to the Director of Business Transformation and work closely with the rest of the UKGBC Advancing Net Zero team.
