The UNEP FI Secretariat works across the banking, insurance and investment industries and cross-cutting workstreams which focus on developing and rolling out practical approaches to addressing challenges and mainstreaming solutions in areas including responding to climate change, financing nature-based solutions, tackling pollution & boosting the circular economy, financing the UN Sustainable Development Goals and promoting human rights.

UNEP FI recruits talented staff and consultants and runs an ongoing internship programme to assist its Secretariat both in Geneva, Switzerland and worldwide. UNEP FI also issues requests for proposals on an ad hoc basis according to its work programme requirements. All positions including internships are also advertised on the UN’s career website here.
