From heat waves to wildfires, drought and sea level rise, our climate is changing before our eyes. The quality of our air is getting worse, while toxic chemicals are showing up in our food, water and household products. These are serious environmental problems that affect the everyday lives of consumers, and yet public health and environmental protections are being rolled back. With our commitment to a fair and just marketplace, CR is now bringing its full power to address climate change and environmental issues in the marketplace and we’re looking for a creative and entrepreneurial person to lead the way.
In this new position, you will have the opportunity to work collaboratively across the organization to build and execute a strategy to bend the curve of consumption toward a sustainable future. You will also help create common cause with young people and communities of color who will be our partners in change. And, you will have the opportunity to tap into the diverse assets of a nonprofit social enterprise to take a unique, consumer-facing approach to shape the marketplace and reduce or eliminate harms and inequities associated with the products and services people buy and use everyday, including impacts on consumer health, the economy, and the environment.
The Director will provide the vision, leadership, development, and coordination of strategies to influence demand, supply and policy. They will build and secure the strategic partnerships and financial investment needed to achieve our sustainability goals, in partnership with senior leadership, the development team, and colleagues from across the organization.
At Consumer Reports, we're building a diverse workforce that reflects our society, embraces new ways of thinking, celebrates a wide breadth of experiences, and reflects all of the audiences we serve. Inclusion means valuing the unique qualities of each staff member by creating an environment where everyone is valued. Our objective is simple: for all employees to feel supported and set up for success.
