Empowering enterprises to keep the planet habitable for all!

Reversing the impact of climate change is one of the world’s biggest challenges. And businesses have a responsibility to lead the way. While individual consumer choices are important, over 80% of all the emissions reductions necessary for the world to reach Net-Zero, require business-level action. But despite the growing momentum and ambition from companies around the world to set Net-Zero goals, there are significant challenges to delivering on these ambitions. Business leaders don’t really know how they will get there. And the very first step, of getting emissions measurement right, is hard.

Terrascope is an enterprise-grade, end-to-end decarbonisation SaaS platform. By combining AI-assisted carbon measurement & management with deep industry & sustainability expertise, Terrascope helps solve the data management, emissions reduction planning and implementation challenges that large enterprises face to decarbonise their operations and complex supply chains.
 
Publicly launched in June '22, Terrascope is working with customers in multiple industry verticals such as agriculture, food & beverage and consumer packaged goods, as well as horizontals such as manufacturing, technology, transportation and real estate. Terrascope is an innovative player to support enterprises in their green transformation.

Backed by Nupo Ventures (formerly Olam Ventures) and incubated with support from BCG X, Terrascope has now achieved a number of globally recognised accreditations, with more on the way – including being the first CDP Gold Accredited Software provider from Asia and signing The Climate Pledge to be net zero by 2040. Terrascope aims to lead by example and demonstrate that business growth and carbon reduction can go hand in hand.


We are looking for a Decarbonisation Specialist (Agriculture Value Chain) to align our software offering with the forestry, land use and agriculture methodologies and guidance, from emissions measurement to science-based target setting and decarbonisation strategies and actions. 

This is a remote role and we are open to any applicants as long as they are able to speak and write Japanese fluently, reporting functionally into the Head of Sustainability in Singapore and regionally into the General Manager (Japan). 

In this role you will:

  • Contribute to developing our product-related decarbonisation SaaS offering
  • Be responsible for driving compliance of our software and processes with the product carbon accounting standards and the sector-specific agriculture and land sector standards
  • Enable interdisciplinary teams to develop and evolve our offerings for clients that seek to measure and reduce their greenhouse emissions
  • Develop innovative technology-led solutions for complex problems, such as supplier engagement and supply chain traceability 
  • Participate in industry associations and networks to stay up to date on the latest trends in standards, global best practices and technology

You should have:

  • Minimum 5+ years of relevant experience in any climate consulting or in-house corporate roles; with 2+ years of carbon accounting specifically
  • An understanding of product (life cycle assessment) carbon accounting methodologies, in particular ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 on life cycle assessment, ISO14067 on the carbon footprint of products, GHG Protocol Product Life Cycle Standard, and the WBCSD Pathfinder Framework 2.0
  • A passion for catalyzing change and working with multinational enterprises to decarbonise their operations and supply chains in line with the Paris Agreement
  • Fluency in written and spoken Japanese

Even better if you:

  • Familiar with the GHG Protocol Land Sector and Removals guidance and the SBTi Forest, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) guidance
  • Have an understanding of the 2006 IPCC Guidelines and 2019 Refinements for the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector
  • Thrive when working on complex problems with interdisciplinary teams
  • Have published research on life cycle assessments
  • Have experience leveraging geo-location technologies that support monitoring, reporting and verification
  • Are an entrepreneurial problem solver comfortable with managing risk and ambiguity
  • Are a self-starter with a growth-mindset and comfortable working independently to drive toward results
We're committed to creating an inclusive environment for our strong and diverse team. We value diversity and foster a community where everyone can be his or her authentic self.
