The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is an independent think tank that delivers the knowledge to act. Our mission is to promote human development and environmental sustainability. Our big-picture view allows us to address the root causes of some of the greatest challenges facing our planet today—ecological destruction, social exclusion, unfair laws and economic rules, a changing climate. With offices in Winnipeg, Geneva, Ottawa, and Toronto, our work affects lives in nearly 100 countries.
The Infrastructure Program works with the Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) methodology to make the case for investment in sustainable infrastructure. SAVi assessments consider the wider environmental, social, and economic costs and benefits of infrastructure investments and incorporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks into integrated cost-benefit analysis and project finance models. We work with public and private decision-makers to advocate for investment in sustainable infrastructure based on the findings of the SAVi assessments.
We are looking for a researcher with 3 to 5 years of expertise in infrastructure project design, social and environmental impact assessments, and/or sustainability indicators in connection to energy and/or transport infrastructure investments. The researcher is expected to work with the SAVi methodology to support the design of SAVi assessments and communicate their results.
