About the job

The Global Sustainability team drives the development and implementation of Google’s global sustainability strategy to further empower action, ensure alignment and prioritization, identify new leadership opportunities, and mitigate risks. We lead sustainability strategy and programs on carbon, circular economy, water, product integration, reporting, and employee engagement.

As a Manager for its sustainability engagement and partnerships program, you will develop and manage a cross-company strategy for Google’s sustainability partnerships and external engagements, coordinate with key partnerships and coalitions in the field, and support the design and execution of event and engagement strategies that advance sustainability priorities across the company.

The name Google came from "googol," a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. And nobody at Google loves big numbers like the Finance team when providing in depth analysis on all manner of strategic decisions across Google products. From developing forward-thinking analysis to generating management reports to scaling our automated financial processes, the Finance organization is an important partner and advisor to the business.


  • Manage key sustainability relationships and partnerships in support of the company sustainability strategy, spanning net zero to product priorities.
  • Develop and maintain program management tools for tracking and monitoring internal and external engagement programs across the company. Provide ongoing support to climate, circular economy, urbanization, and water experts across the company to join and manage new external partnerships and coalitions.
  • Develop trend analyses and track the most up-to-date climate change coalition and partnership news to regularly disseminate across the company.
  • Partner closely with Communications, Policy, and Marketing teams on messaging, policy alignment, and campaigns to advance climate action.
  • Develop and manage the partnership dimensions of regional sustainability strategies across APAC, Latin America, and EMEA.
