Bloomberg in environmental research/data hiring spree

Media and data giant seeks staff for ESG expansion

Bloomberg has started to put the flesh on the bones of its environmental, social and governance (ESG) data and research offering, with a raft of job vacancies now available worldwide at the US-based media giant.

The company has made ESG data a strategic priority, evidenced by the purchase of New Energy Finance in December 2009.

Chairman Peter Grauer said the firm believes ESG will become fundamental to equity market analysis. He told Responsible Investor’s ESG USA event in June: “We believe this will be a long term growth area for us. We’ve really only just begun.”

Rival Thomson Reuters is also targeting the ESG arena, having followed the acquisition of research house Asset4 in November with the purchase of carbon data outfit Point Carbon in May. But a similar trawl through its online recruitment site does not yield any ESG/carbon related vacancies.Bloomberg: Environmental, Social and Governance Equity Research Analyst, London; Clean Energy & Carbon Analyst, Sao Paulo; Clean Energy Analyst, Energy Smart Technologies, New York; Carbon Analyst, New York; Carbon Capture & Storage Analyst, Washington; Clean Energy Reporter/Editor, Washington; Lead Carbon Editor, London
