From Ambition to Action

Over the years, our mission to catalyze climate action has attracted some of the best talent around the world. In 2006, a small group of passionate and engaged university graduates and climate activists in Zurich, Switzerland, stepped up to the challenge and led the way. Today, South Pole has become a thriving Company of over 500 employees worldwide in 20 offices across six continents.  

We act today for a better tomorrow

At South Pole, we believe in Climate Action as a means to achieve a sustainable planet. But financing the goals of the Paris climate agreement calls for a fundamental shift in the global economy. Driven by our love for the planet Earth and the life that inhabits it, we fight day in day out to help businesses, governments and communities make climate action the new normal. To do so, we hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards, driven by a set of core values that guide us in everything we do. Because climate and human development are two sides of the same coin.

We work to be of greater service to society and strive to turn actions into telling evidence.
When working in the implementation of climate change solutions we always look for the simplest, most straightforward answer.
We build on the inspiring exchanges with clients to develop creative solutions, and leverage the collective brilliance of our in-house experts and rich network of stakeholders.
We make sure to do all that we do according to the highest ethical standards.
Our attitude towards our team members, clients, society, and towards the planet.

What makes us unique

At South Pole, we are first and foremost a purpose-driven Company. People join us because they believe in our mission and want to be part of a community that fights together for our shared values and beliefs. But that is not the only reason why working at South Pole is such a rewarding experience...

  • We know that our vision to help create a greener world is both bold and challenging. To achieve it, we settle for nothing less than the absolute best. We form a Community that is stronger than the sum of its parts.
  • Entrepreneurial at heart. It’s not just our founders who are entrepreneurs. We actively promote an innovative mindset at all levels of the organisation, where each and every employee is encouraged to challenge the status quo and empowered to make decisions.   
  • Growing employees in a growing company. With a team of smart, passionate and engaged colleagues, as well as an increasing demand from our clients, opportunities to learn, develop our skills and grow our careers are endless. 
  • All for one, and one for all! Above all other things, what truly drives our dedication and commitment to our purpose is our colleagues.  We learn from each other and grow together. Because that is who Penguins are.

With such an important mission, we expect a lot from our employees, and strive to give a lot in return. Because we care about our employees as much as we care about the planet.

  • Health & Wellbeing

    We believe that health is central to happiness. We organise many wellbeing activities such as yoga, meditation sessions, sports groups, healthy snacks, active breaks, etc.

  • Work-life balance

    From flexible working hours to flexible workplace (home office), with above-average vacation allowances, we strive to make the work and family life puzzle an easy one for our employees.

  • We practice what we preach

    From Vegan Days to plastic-free lunches, off-setting our own Company emissions and countless other initiatives, we fully live our values and lead by example on a daily basis.

  • Company outings and events

    It is not only hard work, we also have lots of fun! We frequently get together to celebrate our successes, do activities together and get to know each other better

The culture here is truly unique, with a strong emphasis on global collaboration and our shared mission to mobilise climate action. I believe that transitioning to a low-carbon economy is the critical challenge of our time, and working at South Pole every day feels like I’m making meaningful contributions to that shift.

Muireann Consultancy & Advisory Services, Zurich

What I find to be special about South Pole is the collaboration between teams and specialists located across the world at different time zones and cultures. I feel proud to contribute towards the positive impact of the work we do and the recognition we receive, and most of all: to contribute to the fight against climate change.

Tom Finance & Admin, Sydney

The main reason why I decided to join South Pole was that I feel this company brings me the opportunity to generate a real impact on the type of projects we develop. The generation of opportunities for the conservation of the ecosystems and the development of communities are key aspects that motivate me.

There are many things I enjoy about working for South Pole. If I had to pick one though, then it would be the diversity. Not only with regards to the different topics I'm working on, but also the collaboration with colleagues and clients across different timezones and cultures.

Denis Consultancy & Advisory Services, Zurich

When it comes to content, our offering covers all the different sustainability topics, so you find yourself engaging one day with the sustainable supply chain team, around a cocoa project in Ghana, and the day after you are working with the fund team, financing innovative adaptation models in South America.

Marco Projects, London

The organisation offers us to work in multicultural teams with all of us from different backgrounds, countries and life experience enabling us to learn new things every day. I would describe South Pole in just 4 simple words: creative, open, employee-driven, and motivating.
