Our role is to provide robust evidence of progress towards our collective sustainability goals and ensure climate pledges bring real, meaningful impact on the ground.   We deploy technology to create the next generation of impact accounting and improve the way carbon emissions are measured, reported, and verified: more simplicity, more affordability, more efficiency and always the best level of accuracy and credibility. We are on a mission to mainstream best-practice for the benefit of all – businesses, people, and the planet.   
As part of the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Data Science team, the LCA Analyst will serve as in-house technical expert for the delivery of consulting work addressing innovative approaches in environmental markets and reporting frameworks. In this role you will help to help clients to achieve their sustainability goals by modelling environmental impacts and improvements of their products or operations.

  • Prepare clear and compelling reports, presentations of analyses, and recommendations for clients. 
  • Contribute to the development of specifications for the design and prototyping of an LCA toolset applied to customized client sustainability reporting solutions.

You have these claims to fame:

  • Familiarity with LCA databases (e.g. Ecoinvent, etc.) and LCA standards & guidelines (e.g. ISO 14040/44). 
  • Master’s degree in environmental science or similar discipline, with a specialization in LCA. 
  • You feel passionate about sustainability & want to make an impact to halt the climate crisis. 

Bonus points for:

  • Experience in the food & beverage, textile and/or transport sectors. 
  • Familiarity with environmental science- and climate change reporting frameworks (GHG Protocol, SBTi, etc.), as this will speed up your onboarding.

What we offer:

  • A competitive compensation package. 
  • A full-time, remote role with hybrid possibilities should you be based in the Netherlands or Luxembourg. 
  • A friendly and driven team to be part of.
