About our Climate Innovation Initiative
Ecotrust Canada’s Climate Innovation Initiative is dedicated to demonstrating how forest carbon management is a powerful tool for mitigating climate change, while at the same time, protecting ecosystems and providing for community prosperity. A core pillar of our work involves engaging with rural, remote, and Indigenous communities and helping explore and develop forest carbon financing opportunities, including carbon offset projects. Our principles are well defined – projects must create clear, lasting, climate benefits; they must conserve or regenerate natural systems; and they must be supported and led by the communities they affect, and in turn, project benefits must flow back to those communities. As we look across Canada’s incredible wealth of carbon rich landscapes and the communities that call these places home, we see the unparalleled potential to make demonstrable progress in the battle against climate change.
The Program Manager will drive successful execution of carbon project development with our rural, remote and Indigenous partner communities, and help lead climate policy development with a focus on Natural Climate Solutions. The Program Manager will report directly to Ecotrust Canada’s Director of Climate Innovation.
