Directory Entry : To contribute to the green transition, we have redefined our strategy for the next five years. We will increasingly focus on financing green projects by Nordic SMEs that aim to go international. In Eastern Europe, we will primarily finance municipal projects. Additionally, we will continue working with green initiatives ranging from the Arctic to Africa.
Also Listing:

Founded in 1990 by the five Nordic countries, Nefco is the Nordic Green Bank – the financial institution that provides only green financing. We serve the interests of our owners, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and work with concrete actions to accelerate the green transition.  

We use a wide spectre of financing instruments, including both equity and loans. We are ready to take financial risk in small and medium-sized projects, if there is a green upside. Our involvement makes projects bankable and helps to mobilise other investors. A lot of our work is about risk management. For us, the real risk is not going green. Today we are about 50 employees. Our headquarters is in Helsinki, Finland, in a hub co-located with the Nordic Investment Bank and the Nordic Development Fund.  

In our financing activities we expect Return on Impact. We screen and classify project proposals based on their expected impact and monitor the concrete results during and after the finalisation of each project. The Environment and Sustainability (E&S) Department is responsible for these reviews and collects and manages data that is used in Nefco’s impact reporting. The E&S Department works closely with the Communications team to produce relevant reports. 

We closely follow the EU’s sustainable finance work and use the EU Taxonomy as reference. Your contribution is needed to improve our sustainability disclosure and assist in project reviews.  

 Are you the one we are looking for? 

We are looking for an Environmental and Sustainability Analyst to join us for a 4-year fixed-term position at Nefco’s headquarters in Helsinki.  

The responsibilities of the analyst include among others 

  • Compile and analyse impact data from Nefco's project portfolio 
  • Monitor environmental and sustainability results of projects 
  • Project sustainability reviews  
  • Develop impact reports and stories together with our Communications team 
  • Follow up trends and development in Sustainable Finance and the EU Taxonomy 

Required qualifications: 

  • You should have completed university studies in environmental engineering or sciences.  
  • Experienced user of the Microsoft tools, especially Excel. 
  • Fluency in English, and preferably working knowledge of one of the Nordic languages.  
  • Previous work experience (2-5 years) is helpful but not necessary. The most important thing is your attitude. We are looking for a team player, but you also need to work independently on defined tasks, take them efficiently forward and find solutions. 
  • We value open-mindedness, flexibility, good interpersonal and organisational skills and a genuine interest in learning new things.  
  • Passion for the green transition and personal motivation to make a difference. 

We offer you:    

  • An opportunity to work with and make an actual contribution to the Nordic countries’ efforts related to the green transition and sustainable investments. 
  • Insights into the markets for sustainable financing. 
  • An interesting and inspiring working environment in an international organisation in the heart of Helsinki.  
  • A multicultural and multilingual environment where you will be working closely together with colleagues of different nationalities and within different expert areas.  

Nefco provides relocation and accommodation assistance for foreign staff moving to Helsinki, Finland for the purpose of taking up this appointment.  

Nefco collaborates with the Nordic Investment Bank (NIB) on administrative and personnel matters. Please apply through this link to our joint recruitment system. The deadline for applications is 7 November 2021.
