City of Denver, CO: Chief Climate and Sustainability Officer
The Office of Climate Action, Sustainability, and Resilience within Denver’s Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE) has an opening for a Chief Climate and Sustainability Officer who will also serve as the Division Director. The Chief Climate and Sustainability Officer is a mayoral appointed, at-will position, with an open line of communication to the Mayor while reporting to the Executive Director of DDPHE.
The Chief Climate and Sustainability Officer is often the public face of Denver’s sustainability, energy and climate efforts, partnering with other city departments, businesses, non-profits and residents, publicizing Denver’s successes to the rest of the world, and working with and learning from communities elsewhere to achieve common climate, sustainability, and energy objectives. Staff work in a variety of areas, including but not limited to, energy efficiency, high performance buildings, renewable energy, climate change mitigation, adaptation and reporting, electric mobility, business assistance, and community engagement, all through the lens of equity.
The office combines two existing teams within DDPHE; the Climate Action Team within the Environmental Quality Division and the Office of Sustainability under the Executive Director, to address the real and present climate crisis. This team will continue to develop and implement various roadmaps and strategies and tactical actions over the next decade to ensure the City meets its interim climate action goals as listed in the Denver 80×50 Climate Action Plan.
