Junior Manager Business Development (m/f/d)


Berlin, Germany

adelphi is the leading independent think-and-do tank in Europe for climate, environment and development. We are some 320 strategists, thought leaders and practitioners working at the local and global levels to find solutions to the most urgent political, economic and social challenges of our time. As a policy consultancy, we support a just transition towards carbon neutrality and sustainable, liveable societies. Our work is grounded in transdisciplinary research, evidence-based consulting and stakeholder dialogues. With these tools we shape policy agendas, facilitate political communication, inform policy processes and support decision-makers.

Reconciling economic growth with climate protection and resource efficiency requires access to affordable and appropriate financing solutions.
