Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is seeking a motivated professional who will build links with key influencers in European institutions and other Networks to raise awareness of FSC.
In 1994, an international group of leaders in business, human rights, and the environment came together with a vision to harness the power of the marketplace to encourage the responsible stewardship of forests. Together they formed the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), setting standards for responsible forest management and developing a certification system so that businesses and consumers could directly contribute to the health of forests and forest communities through their purchasing choices.
For 25 years, through its uniquely trusted forest management and chain-of-custody (COC) certification standards, FSC has been advancing the cause of responsible forest management around the world and across industries. Today, 200 million hectares of forests in 80 countries are certified to FSC forest management standards and more than 38,000 companies are certified to trade in FSC-certified products. For more information on FSC, visit our website at www.ic.fsc.org.
From leading the design of policies and standards to developing markets and promoting the brand, FSC is committed to finding most skilled and dedicated people to work with us around the world in our ongoing mission to protect forests for all, forever.
Reporting to the Regional Director Europe the Advocacy Manager will understand the political landscape and develop approaches to position FSC. He/she will build and manage meaningful partnerships with key organizations, identify programs for outreach to and engagement with policy makers on impact of FSC. The advocacy work is closely linked to the Stakeholder Solutions unit as part of our overall Engagement strategy.
