Transport & Environment
in 1990, Transport
& Environment (T&E) is the European Federation of
environmental NGOs working on sustainable transport. T&E’s vision is a
zero-emission mobility system that is affordable and has minimal impacts on our
health, climate and environment. T&E has shaped some of Europe’s most
important environmental laws: it got the EU to set the world's most ambitious
CO2 standards for cars and trucks but also helped uncover the dieselgate
scandal, campaigned successfully to end palm oil diesel, and secured a
global ban on dirty shipping fuels and the creation of the world's biggest
carbon market for aviation - just to name a few.

power of robust, science-based evidence and a deep understanding of transport
with memorable communications and impactful advocacy.
Brussels, Rome, Madrid, Berlin, Warsaw, Paris and London collaborate with 62
national member and supporter organisations in 25 countries across Europe. All
together members and supporters represent more than 3.5 million people. With
one of the lowest staff turnover rates in the NGO community, we commit to the
professional development of our colleagues and invest in training from their
first day with the organisation.

petroleum by accelerating vehicle electrification in Europe.

audience, with strong research skills who can lead investigative work. Someone

industry’s ability to distort policy and public debates.

people and the environment in Europe and across the globe as well as a
competitive salary with a substantial package of benefits. The role offers
