The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff of more than 500 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana and Beijing.
NRDC’s Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) affiliate is the business voice for the environment. E2 is a national, nonpartisan group of business owners, investors and others who advocate for policies that are good for the environment and good for the economy. E2’s 1000+ members, organized in nine chapters stretching from New England to San Diego, have founded or funded more than 2,500 companies; created more than 600,000 jobs and control more than $100 billion in private equity and venture capital. E2 is a part of NRDC’s Center for Policy Advocacy department.
NRDC is seeking three (3) summer interns to work with the E2 team in our offices in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco.
Interns will work with E2 staff in these offices to develop and execute a program to advance current clean energy initiatives and policies in their regions and expand and amplify business voices in support of these initiatives under E2’s “Clean Jobs Count” campaign.
These full-time, paid internships will run from June 4, 2018 - August 10, 2018.
Interns also will receive a one-year membership in E2’s Emerging Leaders program, which comes with the full benefits of E2 membership, including networking, advocacy, mentoring and other opportunities.
