The global climate crisis requires us to reduce global GHG to net-zero emissions by 2050 in line with the Paris 1.5 agreement; to do so whilst feeding 10 Billion people sustainably, is the greatest challenge of our lifetime.

If you are currently working in environmental footprinting and providing the foundations for impact, yet not part of a journey where this impact is being delivered, Olam's newly created Environmental Footprinting team offers a unique opportunity to turn your expertise into action.

With reach in over 60 countries as well as employing 62,500 globally, Olam's scope for impact on our global challenge is huge, and Olam's digital information systems collect granular environmental data from hundreds of thousands of farmers, from smallholders in tropical cotton and cashew landscapes to extensive, high-tech estate crops from Australia (Almonds) to Zambia (Coffee).

In 2018, Olam launched its breakthrough agri sustainability insights platform, the multi-award- winning AtSource. The Footprinting team will help power AtSource's evolution and, in partnership with Olam businesses, will develop the models, data and insights to drive impactful partnerships and form the basis for Olam's growing portfolio of sustainability services and value-added product offerings.

As Olam's Sustainability Footprinting Analyst in its newly established 'Footprinting' team, you will report to the Lead Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) Modeller and play an integral part in the delivery of Olam's environmental footprints.

In this global role, you will collaborate with multiple stakeholders, including Manufacturing and Technical Services (MATS) global processing function, business units such as AtSource, Spices, Coffee, Cocoa, Edible Nuts, and Dairy, as well as third party service providers. Leveraging these partnerships will, in turn, enable you to deliver consistent, accurate and timely footprints.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Sourcing, consolidating and analysing input data for LCA modelling from multiple sources and systems

  • Working with Olam BUs to ensure the integrity of primary data collection

  • Working closely with the Footprint team to develop the models and methods and outputs as required by the Footprint customers such as AtSource, Finance for Sustainability etc

  • Identifying inconsistencies with data and resolving issues, capturing issues for learning purposes

  • Identifying opportunities to automate data collection and management

  • Generate and communicate insight from large amounts of data

You will have:

  • Experience gathering and interpreting large sets of environmental data - e.g. EcoInvent

  • Advanced Microsoft Excel skills - e.g. pivot table, macros, etc

  • A thorough, practical understanding of LCAs

  • The ability to multitask, with a strong attention to detail

  • Knowledge of agricultural systems (e.g. Cocoa; Coffee, Edible nuts, etc)

  • Educated to Degree/Masters level, experience with a data-related subject, or proven experience

Olam is looking for passionate, driven sustainability professionals who are genuinely interested in making a positive impact on the viability of our environment.
