Due to the rapid growth of our company, we are looking for a Public Affairs Coordinator, to support operational activities for our sales team.

GoodFuels is a fast-growing scale-up located in Amsterdam, with the mission to decarbonize transport. We believe that for a better world without climate change, energy consumption must ultimately become fossil-free. We are the frontrunner in the field of sustainable fuels for shipping and heavy road transport. GoodFuels plays a crucial role in the active development, innovation, and commercialization of advanced fuels.

GoodFuels focuses on the heavy-duty transport segment, where sustainable drop-in fuels are the only available option to reduce CO2 emissions. GoodFuels Marine is specifically focused in decarbonizing the shipping industry using advanced biofuels.  GoodFuels sustainable fuels do not require any modifications to engines (‘drop-in’) and can therefore directly replace fossil fuels. All our fuels meet the strict criteria of the RSB standard and are approved by our own independent Sustainability Board, comprised of leading NGOs and academics. Typically, GoodFuels‘ fuels reduce the carbon footprint by 85% (well-to-wheel).
