The Climate Trust, a mission-driven nonprofit that specializes in financing climate solutions, is actively seeking candidates for two open seats on our Board of Directors.

The Climate Trust is governed with the assistance of experienced business leaders—a network of specialists who have agreed to provide meaningful advisory services on a regular basis. Board members help The Trust to achieve its mission and objectives through the contribution of their work and wisdom.

The Trust’s Board of Directors oversees all of the organization’s programs and activities, with each member sitting on one or more specialized committees. The Oregon Offset Committee oversees activities that fulfill The Trust’s statutory obligations under the Oregon Carbon Dioxide Standard, the nation’s first legislation to curb carbon dioxide emissions. Other committees include the Risk, Finance, Executive, and Compensation Committees.

To express interest in a role with our Board of Directors, we are asking candidates to please fill out the abbreviated application on our website. Applications submitted prior to 5/31/17 will be given priority for the two open board seats, however, submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis for the remainder of the year.

“We are looking for candidates who would further strengthen our board’s breadth of talent and background, particularly in the areas of investment fund management and impact or institutional fund raising,” said Sean Penrith, Executive Director for The Climate Trust. “Adding expertise in these areas would make an important and positive impact on our business as our strategy grows and evolves.”

Board members are asked to attend quarterly meetings and participate in at least one subcommittee. Meetings generally occur during the first week of March, June, September, and December during normal business hours. All board members are expected to serve the best interest of The Climate Trust and its affiliates with a minimum board term of three years.
