Job Description

Help us transform financial markets to include carbon emissions
At Emmi we are on a mission to help every investor understand the immense risks and opportunities emerging in global markets as the world transitions towards a low carbon economy. Emmi measures how much stronger a company’s financial position needs be in order to offset its carbon risk.

Finance is undergoing a huge low carbon shift but don’t take our word for it, here’s what Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock, the world’s largest asset manager said earlier this year:

“Climate change is on the edge of fundamentally reshaping finance… In the near future – and sooner than most anticipate – there will be a significant reallocation of capital.”

Emmi is accelerating this transformation by re-evaluating a company’s financial position to assess their financial strength relative to the amount of carbon emitted.

This empowers all investors to easily understand complicated financial data and climate science scenarios so they can make more complete financial decisions. Since we use the latest climate science, Emmi is fundamentally on the leading edge of accelerating the world’s financial transition needed to avoid the worst case scenarios of climate change
