The Carbon Literacy Project is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community. This is a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of flexible working arrangements to support individuals from different backgrounds and particularly encourage applications from individuals who are:

… all of whom are currently under-represented within The Carbon Literacy Project and the wider environmental sector.


We are taking direct responsibility for our economy, our planet and our way of life in order to act against climate change. Therefore, we ask that our volunteers and employees be registered to vote – here’s why.
