Operations Associate


Overview

 

FSC Investments and Partnerships (FSC I&P) promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Our mission aligns with the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), the world’s leading and most trusted voluntary forest certification system.

 

A total of more than 220 million hectares of the world’s forests are managed to FSC standards, or an area greater than 3 times the size of Texas. FSC certified forests deliver benefits for forests and the people who rely on them, and offer a positive way forward to address the threats posed by climate change and inequities in business-as-usual economics. 

 

FSC Investments and Partnerships seeks an Operations Associate to support the Executive Director and the 4-person team in Seattle. Our team collaborates with more than 250 colleagues and dozens of partners worldwide.

 

About FSC

 

In the early 1990s, an international group of leaders in business, human rights, and the environment came together to develop standards for managing forests. These visionaries were responding to the many dire threats to the world’s forests.

 

FSC certification tells you that the products you buy come from a forest that is responsibly managed. Trees in these forests are grown and harvested according to a robust set of guidelines that benefit the environment, economy and society as a whole. The standard includes limiting the number of trees removed, restricting highly hazardous pesticides, and protecting the rights of Indigenous Peoples as well as habitats of wildlife.

 

FSC Investments and Partnerships is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) non-profit established in 2016 with a commitment to dramatically accelerate the profile of FSC’s work, highlight its urgency, and fund its ambition to steward the world’s forests. Its goal is to accelerate the engagement and contributions of individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies around the world. It collaborates with FSC offices around the world and the International Secretariat in Bonn, Germany to deliver on its common goal of Forests for All Forever.
