Gendered and feminist analyses offer valuable perspectives on the entanglements of work, political economy and climate change. There are, however, significant multispecies dimensions, which, so far, have been under-examined. Accordingly, in this paper, I propose an intersectional approach to the labour politics of climate change which takes nonhuman animals and human–animal relations seriously. There is potential to expand our ideas about green labour to include what I call humane jobs: jobs that benefit both people and animals. As a result, my goals are to offer generative, conceptual fodder that can propel scholarship and political action, and to encourage a nuanced, ethical, sustainable and just approach to multispecies labour.
