The NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business (CSB) is seeking a skilled, committed NYU graduate student to serve as the project lead for the renewable energy and energy efficiency work of a CSB initiative, Invest NYC SDG, (the “CSB initiative”).  The CSB initiative has the goal of driving private sector financing toward creating a more sustainable, inclusive, and resilient New York City.
