EDF is creating a fast track to environmental gains by partnering strategically with companies that have the power to rapidly leverage real environmental improvements across entire sectors. In some cases, these companies are large or influential enough to be more powerful than many national governments. Our communications strategy supports our program goals by pushing out new innovations, creating networks of green business innovators, and challenging businesses to think outside the box and see that protecting the environment works to their benefit – allowing them to reap the rewards while challenging others to do the same.

In collaboration with program leaders, the Director develops and executes a comprehensive stakeholder communications strategy, which includes media outreach, online engagement, website,blog and social media strategy, speaking engagements, thought leadership activities, events and collateral development as related to EDF's work with business. This position requires an understanding of and keen interest in the business sustainability space, as well as an ability to manage multiple projects at once. This is an unparalleled opportunity to lead a very effective and dedicated team at the dynamic intersection of business and the environment.
