Senior Carbon Finance Advisor

Remote (United States) Arlington, VA

Impact Finance and Markets is the Nature Conservancy’s newly created division that will oversee and accelerate our work in impact investing, carbon markets and the growing work partnering with corporations to deliver on TNC’s 2030 goals. This division brings together pre-existing teams to form a globally dispersed staff of 60 to provide the organization with leadership, strategic guidance and partnership in conservation finance, commercial market development and corporate practices and supply chains in key sectors.


The Senior Carbon Finance Advisor will develop a deep understanding of TNC’s Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) project pipeline and priorities, and will work with global and regional conservation, legal and finance experts, including Nature Conservancy staff, potential cornerstone investors, and potential operating partners to assess the financial viability of potential projects and programs and support regional teams’ efforts to create financially viable carbon projects. The Advisor will bring creativity and innovation to bear on carbon project financial models in order to bring carbon finance to underutilized project types and communities that are currently unable to participate in carbon markets. The Advisor will play a key role in developing revenue sharing models which result in equitable and viable outcomes for all key stakeholders, including project developers and local communities.
