Everland – Posted by tanzia.hasan@everland.earth Anywhere

Job Description

Everland exists to support communities in their efforts to protect their forests and wildlife and improve their livelihoods, resulting in climate change mitigation and biodiversity conservation benefiting everyone. We do this by helping communities in the developing world monetize their forest and biodiversity assets by marketing Verified Emissions Reductions (VERs) from the world’s most impactful REDD+ projects. This generates critical resources to support conservation activities on the ground. We support conservation projects that go beyond the requirements of REDD+ verification, representing only projects that demonstrate transformative impacts for forest conservation, wildlife protection, and community livelihood development.


We are a values-driven company. We believe that in order to deliver on our purpose and serve our stakeholders, the organization must embody the kind of change we want to help create in the world. We do this through our commitment to practicing a set of core values and personal commitments that reflect the ethos of the company, and which animate our interactions with one another and our stakeholders.


Our Values:

  1. Care of the Earth
  2. Care for People
  3. Fair share
  4. Trust
  5. Teamwork
  6. Integrity


Our Commitments:

  1. Give our very best
  2. Be of service to all
  3. Be reliable: I do what I say I will do
  4. Be receptive: Observe non-judgmentally, listen deeply
  5. Be transparent, be truthful, be trusting, be trustworthy
  6. Be empathetic: Understand deeply the work, needs, interests, and limitations of all of our stakeholders – and ourselves
  7. Personal growth: Constant development of skills and knowledge


Everland strives to create a culture of diversity and inclusion for all employees that respects their individual strengths, views, and experiences. We believe that our differences enable us to be a better team – one that makes better decisions, drives innovation, and delivers better business results.  We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and encourage people of any and all backgrounds to apply.
