    The Air Quality Program (AQP) is looking to fill a Climate Change: Cap-and-Invest Trading Lead (Environmental Planner 4) (In-Training) position. This position will be located at our Headquarters Building in Lacey, WA. Upon hire, you must live within a commutable distance from the duty station.
       
    The mission of the Air Quality Program (AQP) is to protect and improve air quality in Washington and to protect our State’s environment for current and future generations. In 2021, Washington’s Legislature passed the landmark Climate Commitment Act (CCA) – a sweeping piece of legislation that directs Ecology to develop and implement the state’s first Cap-and-Invest Program and commits our state to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 95% by 2050.

    Washington’s program is only the second such economy-wide program in the nation, and Ecology has been directed by the Legislature to have it up-and-running by January 1, 2023. It’s a big task with even bigger long-term impacts on the state’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the global fight against climate change. We are hard at work, looking to hire a diverse range of mission-focused professionals to help us bring this important legislation to life.

    As the Cap-and-Invest Trading Lead, you will provide staff leadership in the Greenhouse Gas Auctions and Market unit. This unit helps bring companies into the cap-and-invest program, facilitates allowances auctions and trading, and safeguards the cap-and-invest program’s integrity through ongoing market surveillance. In this role, you will be responsible for ensuring firms can trade—and participate—in the cap-and-invest market. By helping firms get comfortable with this new market and how it works, you will enable them to maintain a primary focus on decreasing emissions so Washington can meet its goal of reducing emissions by 95% by 2050.

    Tele-work options for this position: This position will be eligible for a tele-work schedule. Applicants with questions about position location options, tele-work, and flexible or compressed schedules are encouraged to reach out to the contact person listed below in “other information.” Schedules are dependent upon position needs and is subject to change.

    Application Timeline: This position will remain open until filled, with an initial screening date of November 22, 2022.

The agency reserves the right to make an appointment any time after the initial screening date.
