The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter to cover the fast-changing world of climate finance. Investors are driving businesses to address carbon emissions, and governments are relying on them to fund the global shift towards clean energy. How this plays out, who wins and who loses and whether organizations can live up to their promises are among the biggest stories in finance. You’ll need to have or develop a wide range of knowledge: the science and policy of climate change, emerging financial regulation, international financial relations, banking, investing and risk management.
You will report to Ken Brown, the Financial Enterprise, Risk and Regulation Editor. While you may start the job working remotely, you will eventually be based in our New York office.
break news on climate finance and regulation: new deals, new policy developments, new turns in the international negotiations
write authoritatively on the complex interactions between climate and finance
examine and investigate businesses’ and regulators’ financial pledges on climate, holding them accountable and keeping readers informed
experience covering finance, accounting or a related subject
an ability to work collaboratively across several teams and locations
strong writing skills and a history of proprietary work
To apply, please submit your resume, a cover letter explaining how you would approach the job and relevant clips of your past work.
