Outpost Natural Foods Cooperative is a natural foods retail grocery co-op with four store locations (“Capitol,” “Bay View,” “Mequon,” and “Wauwatosa”) in the Milwaukee metro area. Outpost is member-owned, governed by a board of co-owner directors, employs approximately 410 people and is the one of the larger consumer food co-ops in the nation (in volume of sales). Their 2016 fiscal year ended in just over $48.5M dollars in sales.
The Climate Collaborative is seeking a part-time contractor to support the project. This is a dynamic opportunity to work as part of a fast-paced, growing project focused on the catalyzing climate action in the natural products industry. The position will support the project’s outreach, communications, and programming workstreams, and manage project reporting, website updates, and company communications.
We are excited to share information on nominations for the first-ever National Co+op Grocers Climate Collaborative Awards! These awards give Climate Collaborative committed companies a platform for recognizing leaders in the natural products industry as well as the opportunity to be recognized for their own accomplishments.
Our theory of change at the Climate Collaborative is: Commit, Act, Impact. We aim to inspire and support the natural products industry in moving from climate commitments, to climate action, to seeing real impacts and GHG reductions—as quickly as possible.
