🤑 Ethical Capital / Finance

Find jobs in Ethical Finance.

This category is perfect for those who want to change finance’s archaic ways and make everyone feel confident about their financial future.  

Jobs in ethical finance can loosely fit in one of three categories according to legal firm Burges Salmon.

  • 1: Green Finance - where loans are made available to support ‘green’ projects such as renewable energy.  
  • 2: Social Finance – where money is made available to help with a social project e.g. to address unemployment or to improve access to services. 
  • 3: Sustainability-linked finance – where debt doesn’t necessarily get used for a green or social project but the loan is assessed against an agreed, documented list of ESG metrics – ESG meaning ‘Environmental, Social, Governance’.
