Greener Beans was founded to accelerate a shift toward sustainable production and consumption. To fulfil this purpose, we are focussing on making shopping sustainably easy and rewarding, beginning with grocery shopping in the UK.
We recognise that the majority of our food production is unsustainable, and although an increasing number of us wish to shop more sustainably, doing so is complex, inconvenient, and perceived to be costly. We are building a service to offer online grocery shoppers more sustainable swaps, in an easy and rewarding way. By changing the system incentives, we will drive increased transparency and traceability in food supply chains and more sustainable production.
We’re seeking a talented, knowledgeable and pragmatic sustainability leader to establish and run our research department. You’ll be engaging with leading experts in the sustainability research and NGO community to maintain and continually develop our product level sustainability model.
This will require reviewing, assessing, and summarizing the latest research on sustainable food systems as published by civil society and academia. Your research will feed into the Greener Beans Sustainability Measurement System to improve our recommendations and ensure the model is consistently up-to-date.
We believe getting the sustainability measurement broadly right (but not perfect), making it transparent and improving it over time is key to gaining the trust of the sustainability community and consumers. We already have an existing model to measure sustainability at a product level and are looking to you to take it to the next level!
