The Climate Group
London, UK

The Climate Group is a non-profit which works with businesses to promote private sector leadership on climate changes.

"Working at The Climate Group was interesting because it provided a mix between a business and environmental perspective. I learned how to talk about climate change in a way business people would understand, and care about. My first project involved doing research on over 200 European, Latin and African companies to find those which had published information on their carbon emissions and/or publicly released information on their past or planned reductions. For my second project, I conducted surveys for the Institutional Investor's Group on Climate Change, worked with pension funds to develop the concept of climate risk and encouraged more businesses to disclosure their emissions."
