Carbon Pulse is seeking a Biodiversity Correspondent
Location: Europe (Remote)
Job type: Full time
Start date: As soon as possible
Salary: Commensurate with experience
Carbon Pulse is an online, subscription-based service dedicated to providing in-depth news and intelligence about carbon pricing initiatives and climate change policies around the world. Founded in 2015 and with reporters across the globe, our unrivalled coverage focuses mainly on emissions trading markets and other methods of using taxes and market-based mechanisms to cut greenhouse gas output, though we also report on related environmental markets including biofuel credit trading programmes.
In December 2022, we expanded our coverage to the emerging market for biodiversity credits and the policies and corporate strategies that back it.
As our Biodiversity Correspondent, your main focus will be on:
- Regulatory, commercial, and technical developments in the emerging biodiversity credit market, both in regards to specific biodiversity certificates, broader nature credit types, and efforts to include biodiversity aspects into carbon credits.
- Broader commercial and regulatory efforts to raise finance and otherwise enhance nature protection, such as the establishment of new, targeted nature and biodiversity funds, start-ups, new technologies, large projects, etc.
- International and national policies and regulatory initiatives regarding nature and biodiversity protection and restoration, with a special focus on national implementation of the targets outlined in the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
- Your focus will be global, and there will be some international travel for conferences and other industry events.
- You excel at building up and maintaining a wide network of sources and contacts in all aspects of your field
- You are a self-starter and able to work independently, eager to identify and explore deeper policy/market trends while also managing the steady flow of spot news stories
- You have the ability to speak and write English at a professional level. Fluency in other languages as well is a bonus
- You have at least two years’ experience in either reporting, or working in the biodiversity/conservation space or with carbon markets
- You have the ability to manage your time and multi-task effectively
- You are proficient in reading large swathes of content sources to monitor them for relevant news and other useful information
