Team Leader (f/m/x) Finance

Climate Analytics gGmbH

Climate Analytics was formed in 2008 in Potsdam to bring cutting edge science and policy analysis to bear on one of the most pressing global problems of our time: human-induced climate change. As the urgency of this problem has grown, so have we, and our organisation now has four offices in Berlin, Lomé, New York and Perth, and over 80 people with wide-ranging expertise.

We are motivated by the desire to empower those most vulnerable – Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries – to use the best science and analysis available in the international climate negotiations, as well as developing policies and institutional capacity to adapt to climate change. We undertake extensive research on the 1.5°C temperature limit in the Paris Agreement, and the risks and vulnerabilities these countries face. We also evaluate progress on climate action and show governments how they can act on their policies to keep global warming to this limit.
