Business and Product Development Internships at the Carbon Rating Agency

Location: City, London

As part of expanding the capability of the Carbon Rating Agency to meet the current demands from our public and private sector clients, we are seeking exceptionally skilled Product Development and Business Development interns for our Carbon Asset Ratings Division.


The Carbon Rating Agency (CRA) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the IDEAglobal Group. It is the world’s only ratings agency focused on carbon and energy efficiency asset ratings. Its mission is to enable the creation of carbon as an asset class. It provides a suite of ratings and analytical products including carbon ratings, energy efficiency ratings, ratings of INDCs, trading schemes, PoAs, sectors and indices. The principle role of these products is an enabler of climate finance, risk sharing between public and private stakeholders and for the construction of legitimate instruments necessary for this new asset class to crowd in private capital. The CRA’s products have been built using both financial and environmental market experts such as the former UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres and former UN Under-Secretary-General Nitin Desai. The CRA has benefitted from testing its suite products with IDEAglobal’s network of Sovereign Wealth Funds, institutional investors and investment banks, as well as multilateral organizations and leading corporations. This has enabled the creation of risk metrics and tools with strong foundations for comparability with other asset classes and legitimate accounting and valuation of carbon as an asset for voluntary, compliance and investment purposes. In June 2008 Lord Stern (then Vice Chair of IDEAglobal Group), Shandi Modi (Founder and Chairman of IDEAglobal Group) and Ian Johnson (Chairman, The Carbon Ratings Agency) officially launched the CRA at the London Stock Exchange.


The ideal candidates should have:

·Very strong numerical and analytical capabilities

·Science/engineering/climate finance background

·Direct experience in the energy, transport, infrastructure or other relevant sector

·Experience working in different international geographies

·Proven creative skill set with regards to product development

·Excellent written and verbal communication skills
