Globally, the demand for transportation is large and growing, resulting in a growing energy demand with substantial impact on the environment. The Sustainable Transport unit of Ecofys delivers sustainable transport solutions. This requires know-how on policy strategies that significantly influences emissions from transport by energy efficiency measures, optimized transport planning, modal shift and by introducing renewable energy solutions for cleaner vehicles.
As a Senior Consultant you are responsible for market development and client relations, unit performance, content development and project performance. You actively participate in the sales process and the project execution process and are yourself actively involved in acquisition and stakeholder management. The strategy for this unit is directed at growth in new working areas. You are capable of adding to this growth, inspiring others and making use of the available synergies within the company.
The unit Sustainable Transport delivers services ranging from concrete implementation advice for local governments to strategic advice to corporate clients on their mobility or logistic sustainability options. In our currently small team you can contribute largely to our objectives to increase the share of transport policy advice to the European Commission, and strategic advice to business clients that want to be frontrunners in making transport fully sustainable. Last year our range of projects included the wide scale introduction of the use of (green) natural gas in heavy duty transport, the green driver challenge to influence driver’s behaviour in a business environment, multiple projects aiming at sustainable shipping, and defining transport scenario’s for the future.
