Job Description
Air Products is a thriving Fortune 500 global company that is growing and looking for hardworking, driven professionals to join our team! With over 19,000 employees and operations in over 50 countries, Air Products is committed to its Higher Purpose of bringing people together to collaborate and innovate solutions to the world's most significant energy and environmental sustainability challenges.

We have an immediate opening for a Greenhouse Gases Program Manager. This position is available at our world HQ in Allentown, PA, remotely in the U.S., Alberta, Canada, or Northern California. If you are passionate about the environment, we invite you to apply today!

The GHG Program Manager will define and implement our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) compliance strategy for North America focusing on the impact to the company and its valued customers. This requires a thorough knowledge of existing and evolving GHG regulation in the U.S. and Canada, ensuring systems and work processes are defined in advance of any regulation or change in regulation to ensure full compliance, and being accountable for those work processes - testing, validating, documenting, reporting - to ensure accurate and timely compliance. As the subject matter expert on GHG regulations and compliance, the GHG Program Manager must be able to effectively communicate on this topic with Air Products' employees, customers, regulators, and all third-party stakeholders.

In this role, you will support our strategy of engaging with government entities during the proposal and comment phase of new GHG regulations. This will be done in partnership with our Government Relations office and business leaders. You will work closely with the business operations managers, procurement, environmental manager, and EHS director to ensure that cost effective solutions and work processes are in place to maintain Air Products position in the marketplace.

What we're looking for:
  • Bachelor's degree in engineering (chemical preferred) or environmental science, or a related field of study. A Master's in engineering, and/or an MBA, is desirable.
  • Broad and extensive GHG compliance reporting, managing credits and allocations, experience in multiple U.S. states especially California, and in Canada at the Federal and province level. Familiarity with CA CITSS, Alberta Carbon Registries (CSA), CA federal Credit and Tracking System (CATS), and other credit programs such as LCFS is desirable.
  • 5+ years' experience in a GHG compliance and regulatory engagement role. Understanding the design and operation of large-scale chemical processes, particularly steam-methane reforming, gasification, combustion (e.g., flares, boilers). Specific expertise including industrial hydrogen production processes, as well as their underlying process chemistry is a plus. Be particularly familiar with the sources of, and design/operating aspects that influence, emissions of GHG.
  • Knowledge of process monitoring methods and equipment (their capabilities and their limitations) required to satisfy GHG emission reporting requirements.
  • Understanding alternative commercial models and the impact of alternative regulatory strategies on those business models.
  • Ability to advise on commercial contract terms as they relate to managing current and future compliance cost recovery resulting from GHG regulations.
  • Knowledge of alternative GHG emission regulatory approaches, around the world (i.e., carbon taxes, production allocation systems, cap & trade, etc.).
  • Ability to identify the underlying regulatory objectives and develop alternative strategies.
  • Excellent presentation and interpersonal skills. Able to think on your feet and apply the power of persuasion. Able to sell your "better" alternative to regulators.
  • Strong project management skills, as well as a systems and work process orientation.
  • Experience with root cause analysis, best practices, and continuous improvement.
  • Extensive experience reading and applying GHG regulations to process industries.
  • Experience representing company and industry positions to staff and senior management of regulatory agencies, government ministries and elected officials and their staff. Creating, leading, and contributing to industry group advocacy collaborations.
