About Us: Driven by a passion to solve the climate crisis, The Sunrise Project U.S. is a team of experienced change-makers with a mission to scale social movements to drive the global transition beyond fossil fuels. With affiliated programs and staff in Australia and Europe, we have developed a unique model of grant making and campaigning that supports networks of organizations to drive powerful change towards our mission.
About The Role: This role will lead the development and execution of communications strategies to shift North American insurers away from fossil fuels and align their business with a 1.5C climate pathway, and coordinate the work with our network of partner organizations.
Insurers are the achilles heel of the fossil fuel industry, because no fossil fuel project can be built or operated without insurance – but US insurers lag behind their global peers in adopting sound climate policies. Navigating a challenging US political context, this role will be a “Media Maestro” who develops and drives the breakthrough narratives and stories in business and mainstream media to secure policies from major insurers like AIG, Chubb, and Travelers.
We support networks of organizations to work together to achieve outcomes that would not be possible by individual organizations acting alone. We expect all roles at Sunrise to actively support the capacity building of these networks and partner organizations.
