Dear Ms. Jones:

I first learned of GreenOrder when Andrew Shapiro spoke on “Using Green to Win: Sustainable Innovation and

Competitiveness” at Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies this fall, and have been very interested in

GreenOrder’s interdisciplinary approach to using green leadership to spur innovation, enhance competitiveness, and boost

profits for clients. I was very pleased to see on your website that you are accepting applications for an Analyst position, and

I am writing to apply for it.

I hold a Masters of Environmental Management from Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies with a special

focus on climate change economics. I have extensive knowledge of statistics, economics and business management

practices, as well as highly developed quantitative and modeling skills. In addition, I have a solid understanding of the

challenges and opportunities of corporate social responsibility. Through practical coursework at the Yale School of

Management in a course titled Leadership & Values, I examined the arguments behind corporate social responsibility and

applied the knowledge learned to a real world group project to devise an environmental strategy for a European airline. As a

testimony to the creative problem-solving skills of my team, a suggestion we proposed, which is to replace some of the

short-haul flight with high-speed rail services, was developed separately and is now being considered by the particular

airline.

My professional experience includes a summer internship with the Green Ministry of Environment, where I studied the

impact of carbon pricing on major industries in Green, and a case-writing project at Yale in collaboration with CERES, a

non-profit organization based in Boston, where I wrote cases about companies that are exemplary in their business response

to climate change.

With my quantitative training, creative problem-solving skills and relevant coursework and professional experience, I am

confident of excelling in the position of Analyst at GreenOrder.

I hope you will find my knowledge and experience a great potential addition to GreenOrder and look forward to discussing

with you further the possibility of putting my skills to work for your organization.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME
