The Geneva-based United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a strategic public-private partnership between UNEP and the global financial sector. UNEP FI works with approximately 220 financial institutions, which are signatories to the UNEP FI Statements of Environmental Commitment, and a range of partners and organisations, to develop and promote linkages between the environment, sustainability and financial performance. Through its working groups and regional activities, comprehensive work programme, training and research, UNEP FI carries out its mission to identify, promote, and realise the adoption of best environmental and sustainability practice at all levels of financial institution strategies and operations.

Started in 2015, the UNEP FI workstream on Positive Impact provides a platform for the Initiative’s banks and investors interested in working with solution providers, programme initiators and the wider community of stakeholders on two complementary fronts: a new framework for financial analysis (the Positive Impact Principles) and the development of impact-based business and financial solutions (solution-building hub), both ultimately aimed at delivering a vibrant positive impact market.

UNEP FI needs a Sustainable Finance Expert to provide project management support to its Positive Impact Workstream.
