Climate Data Analyst - Intern

About us

Asset Impact (AI) is an impact-driven climate start-up. Our vision is of a financial system that sets the global economy on a path to net zero emissions. We are a specialist provider of climate data and analytics used by financial institutions to achieve emissions reductions in the real economy. Our asset-based data and analytics cover the most carbon-intensive sectors of the global economy and map more than 250,000 physical assets across nine industry sectors – linked to more than 60,000 listed and private companies – to issued securities.

Our clients, mostly financial institutions, include large global organizations such as the 1,000+ financial institutions applying the PACTA tool, Barclays for its BlueTrackTM tool, ING for its Terra climate approach, and PwC for its Climate Excellence Tool.

AI was established in 2018 in Paris, and works globally. We became part of GRESB, the leading ESG benchmark for real estate and infrastructure investments, in 2022 after spinning off from the 2° Investing Initiative, an innovative international think tank working to align financial markets with climate goals. We are expanding rapidly to support the growing needs of financial institutions as they embark on their journey to decarbonization.
