Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) - refers to the three critical factors in evaluating the sustainability and associated potential financial performance of a company. ESG data is increasingly crucial for our clients - providing deeper intelligence than conventional financial analysis alone. Climate change, regulatory pressures, the importance of human capital, and diversity are just a few critical factors global investors consider to identify emerging risks and opportunities best. Mike Bloomberg speaks about ESG in the Bloomberg Impact report here - https://www.bloomberg.com/impact/ .

Climate data and analytics are closely linked to the recommendations of the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). One of the main focus areas for this role is to build solutions that can analyze and benchmark TCFD reports published by companies, as well as to build independent datasets and analytics that can be used to create, or validate, those reports. Think of, for example, company and portfolio carbon footprints, identifying material climate-related risks and conducting scenario analysis. Building these solutions will require close collaboration with other Bloomberg areas, such as Geospatial data. These solutions will help financial market participants to better understand which companies are taking action on climate change and which aren't. They'll understand better which companies are most exposed to climate-related risks, ultimately leading to better investment decisions.

We are looking for a motivated senior software engineer to grow the ESG team in London and drive success.
