Position Description
SFO is an internationally-recognized sustainability leader in the aviation industry for its history of climate action, environmental policy, sustainability reporting, alternative transportation infrastructure procurement, and progressive infrastructure development to maximize resultant economic and social returns. Our Airport has benefitted from visionary leadership and a deep culture of engagement across our workforce of nearly 40,000, including SFO Commission/City of San Francisco employees, vendors, and tenants that serve over 53 million passengers annually.

SFO's mission is to provide an exceptional Airport in service to our communities. To advance that mission, SFO adopted the Airport-specific EONS developed by the Airports Council International (ACI) - North America, which defines Airport sustainability as, "a holistic approach to managing an Airport so as to ensure the integrity of the Economic viability, Operational efficiency, Natural Resource conservation, and Social responsibility (EONS) of the Airport." This template was applied to present historic social and environmental outcomes of SFO's programs and projects through the release of four Sustainability Reports. This coupled with the soon-to-be released Airport's first triple-bottom line-focused Sustainability Plan, which will roadmap the Airport's attainment of its five-year Strategic Plan triple-zero objectives (zero net energy, zero solid waste to landfill, and zero carbon emissions), seek to establish SFO as the greenest airport on the globe within the next five years.

The Department is seeking its Sustainability Analyst to support the Airport's growing portfolio of work to attain carbon neutral, zero net energy, and zero waste status by 2021, even as our passenger enplanements continue to grow. This individual is tasked with working autonomously across our matrixed organization to gather and analyze large complex datasets and develop and deliver presentations that support the annual Airport's Climate Action Plan/Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory and Sustainability Plan/Report. To that end, SFO's Sustainability Analyst will understand and evaluate the complexities of the carbon lifecycle and climate models, greenhouse gas emissions accounting and reporting techniques, efficiency investment strategies grounded in lifecycle cost analyses, community engagement tools such as community-based social marketing, and the carbon offset market.The Sustainability Analyst reports to the Airport's Energy Programs Manager.
