Organization Overview

The International Council on Clean Transportation is an independent nonprofit organization founded to provide first-rate, unbiased research and technical and scientific analysis to environmental regulators. Our mission is to improve the environmental performance and energy efficiency of road, marine, and air transportation, in order to benefit public health and mitigate climate change.


The International Council on Clean Transportation has a summer internship opportunity in our San Francisco, CA office to work in the Roadmap program. The goal of the Roadmap Program is to help policymakers worldwide identify and understand trends in the transportation sector, assess emission impacts of different policy options, and frame plans to effectively reduce emissions of both greenhouse gases (GHGs) and local air pollutants. The Roadmap relies on a spreadsheet-based model that estimates transportation emissions to 2050 by country and mode for multiple policy scenarios. The model serves as the main tool to assist key partners and agencies with transportation emissions calculation models, methods and data, and to develop reports and presentations that assess the effects of different policies on transportation emissions.


The specific activities of this internship will be to: (1) compare model parameters, algorithms and results with those from other global and national models, (2) update and validate transportation data for multiple countries and modes, and (3) develop a report summarizing the data and result comparisons. This internship will provide potential interns with the opportunity to learn about transportation emission calculation methods and transportation data. Excellent Excel skills are essential, and familiarity with transportation emission calculation methods is desirable.


  • Advanced MS Excel skills;
  • Familiarity with transportation emission calculation methods, and transportation data sources;
  • Excellent research, analytic, quantitative, and writing skills;
  • Proficiency in English;
