Business Development Manager

December 22, 2022

Tjänsten är nu tillsatt.

ZeroMission is a company with a strong value base whose vision is to take companies to net zero emissions and to create planetary benefit. Through climate impact calculations, climate strategies, and carbon offsetting we help companies take their responsibility to measure and reduce their emissions but also to bind carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to the corresponding extent they have emissions left. We do this through high-quality energy- and forestry projects. Our customers include several well-known companies with a high sustainability profile. We who work at ZeroMission want to make a difference to the planet in harmony with better business for our customers. Everyone in our team is driven by a strong commitment to the climate issue.


We are now continuing to build a dream team of climate heroes that will develop and grow our business and help slow down the course of climate change.

With an increased insight into the importance of the climate issue, for both society and businesses, the demand for our products and services increases. With our powerful online calculation platform, our customers can calculate and gain control over their climate impact. We support our customers and partners with tools, methods and knowledge for their climate calculations and reports, but also for more traditional sustainability reporting. The need for our services is growing and we are therefore in need of strengthening our team with a Business Development Manager.

  • Experience working with climate compensation- or calculations is considered highly meritorious
  • Proven track-record of leading complex projects related to business development

Personal qualities

The role suits you who want to work in a fast-growing company where own initiatives are appreciated and where you have the opportunity to make an impact. You are a good project manager and strong communicator who is passionate about developing business. In addition to this, we are looking for you who thrive in a culture that is characterized by cooperation and lack of prestige, openness to colleagues and partners, who dare to think new and support each other. We want to contribute to a society where everyone’s talents are used, which is why we welcome applications from people of all different backgrounds.


Why should you join us?

ZeroMission is a growing and forward leaning company in a market full of possibilities. You will have the freedom to make your mark on the organisation and to take climate action into your own hands. You will be able to execute your ideas to improve our climate and our business and truly make an impact.


Together with our clients ZeroMission has already contributed to climate benefits with the reduction over 5 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and this is only the beginning.


You will be part of a great team of sustainability and climate experts. We recognize that flexibility is important to achieve a healthy work-life balance and we offer a hybrid work model with its base in our beautiful office in Gamla Stan in Stockholm. We are connected to collective agreements and have attractive benefits offer.


Finally, personal development is key to your and our success and we ensure that you get a structured plan with trainings, feedback sessions, and coaching opportunities to help your continual personal growth and development.
