We welcomed six new graduates in November 2020, despite the challenging environment, maintaining our commitment to giving an opportunity to talented, energetic and enthusiastic young graduates seeking a career in sustainable finance.

Constance Chalchat, Head of Company Engagement for BNP Paribas CIB explained: “Net zero can only be achieved with engaged new talent. They are the generation that will live through the worse of climate change if we don’t act now. We made a point to launch the programme despite multiple challenges from the Covid-19 crisis because we want to nurture today the sustainability talent of tomorrow.”

The programme provides selected graduates with an opportunity to make a difference and learn from our leading specialists in sustainable and impact finance. These young employees are developing their skills in a stimulating international environment with three different assignments over 18 months. They will complement their on-the-job training with a certified programme with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainable Leadership. 

The six grads recently shared what the Sustainability Graduate Programme means for them and how it will help their aspirations for a career in sustainability.
