I come across a lot of clean energy companies when I'm researching job opportunities for the newsletter. Each of them makes a difference in the transition away from fossil fuels, but a few work at the intersection of clean energy and social justice. For these companies, it's not just about going green: it's about going green in a way where everyone can benefit.

There's a name for communities that have been disproportionately impacted by environmental hazards like pollution and climate change: environmental justice communities. Our featured company this week, Resonant Energy, is specifically focused on solar projects in underserved areas, helping ensure an equitable transition to clean energy. More than half of their solar installations to date have been in environmental justice communities. Pretty cool!

Let's get to this week's job opportunities:

Resonant Energy is helping build wealth in environmental justice communities by partnering with local nonprofits, builders, and homeowners to expand solar access. In addition to the usual range of benefits, they offer paid time off for community action.

Mango Materials is reducing the environmental impact of plastic pollution by transforming methane into a plastic alternative for the production of sustainable materials. You know those plastics you can't recycle, like caps and plastic wrap? Replacing those plastics with the PHA from Mango Materials means they biodegrade over time, eliminating a source of waste. Really cool opportunity here for those of you interested in research and development.
