Key responsibilities:

  • Contribute to the development of measurement methodology & sustainable products and to help to inform business strategy

  • Participate in the implementation of these recommendations, working with the product team, data collection team and developers

  • Lead client and industry engagement and outreach - to gather and share information about innovations in ESG measurement and to better understand the requirements of end users

  • Represent the firms at industry forums and own the relationship with regulators, NGOs and trade associations

  • Support the Sales and Account Management teams as required


  • Passion for sustainable investing and ESG
