Program Coordinator, Sustainability - Aarhus

Do you want to play a crucial role in reaching Arla’s CO2 reduction goals for 2030 and accomplishing our mission to be climate neutral by 2050?

Then become part of our Global Member & Customer Programs (MCP) team. We are looking for new colleagues to join us on this important journey and help us bring our sustainability and organic farming visions to life across 7 countries in Europe.

MCP is a truly global team of 20 engaged specialists, half of us located at the HQ in Denmark and the rest working across Sweden, Germany and England. Together, we develop farm quality and management programs. Although our team has existed and pursued a sustainability agenda for years, we are now expanding in order to achieve our new ambitious goals.

“We are just getting ready to launch a number of new initiatives for our 10,000 members. For example, we will begin to carry out climate impact check-ups on farms and implement a number of global sustainability schemes,”

explains Senior Director Torben Greve Himmelstrup.
