Sustainability Expert Consultant - Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR)

  • Madrid

Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our Madrid office as part of our Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) team.
You will join a collaborative international group of carbon experts who are innovating in the decarbonization transformation space and solve the most challenging questions in CCUS and CDR.
McKinsey has the goal of helping all industry sectors get to net zero by 2050 and cut carbon emissions by half by 2030 - with this in mind, we have launched McKinsey Sustainability, our new client-service platform. To achieve net zero, the world needs technological innovation, deployment, and scale-up at unprecedented speeds. We developed the McKinsey Platform for Climate Technologies (MPCT) to help clients plan, execute, and scale up the implementation of these critical technologies. MPCT works with the world’s leading experts to anticipate the impact of new technologies and challenge conventional approaches to established ones. We focus on the most critical technologies - those with the potential to transform our sources of energy for every industry, region, and community. 

What You'll Do

You will join the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR) team as part of our Sustainability Practice. You will work in or lead a team (depending on experience) of 3-5 consultants to identify and implement potential solutions for a specific client problem or challenge. Together, you will help clients develop lasting improvements to their performance and realize their most important goals.
You will use your knowledge of CCUS and/or CDR (nature-based and technology-based solutions) to comprehensively examine our clients’ systems, determine where carbon is located, and identify the best method to remove it.
You will provide our clients with science-based recommendations and net-zero plans for them to reduce emissions across their value chain.
Depending on your experience, you might have the opportunity to lead the day-to-day execution of a client project while guiding and developing individual team members. You will work directly with clients, usually on site, and you will take ownership of the overall project and its end products.
When you join McKinsey, you are joining a firm that will invest in your professional development.
As an Expert Consultant, you will receive training and coaching in the following skills:
  • Structuring ambiguous problems and taking action to solve them
  • Synthesizing complex information into clear takeaways and recommendations
  • Working effectively with diverse teams to come up with the best solution and moving people organizations to act
  • Establishing trust-based relationships with clients to better serve their organizations
  • Communicating effectively with all audiences, including senior leaders, in a structured manner
  • Developing your leadership style, leveraging your own passions, strengths, and personal values
Lastly, you will play a key role in helping us to grow both our Sustainability Practice and our reputation as leaders in the market, so we can continue to fulfill our mission to help all industries get to net zero by 2050 and cut carbon emissions in half by 2030.


  • Excellent academic record and master’s degree or equivalent, ideally in engineering, chemistry, or environmental science 
  • 6+ years of professional experience in carbon capture technologies and/or carbon sequestration (nature-based or technology-based solutions), ideally with exposure to business consulting; you have the flexibility to enter at various levels, depending on your experience
  • Ambition to work in a fast-paced, results-oriented, multicultural, multidisciplinary environment with a steep learning curve 
  • Strong people skills, including the ability to work collaboratively in a team environment and with people at all levels in an organization 
  • Excellent problem-solving skills, familiarity with working with numbers and quantitative models, and ability to interpret and communicate results to team members and clients
