Women in Finance

Earth Capital has made a pledge for gender balance across Financial Services by signing up to the Women in Finance Charter.

This is a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to work together to build a more balanced and fair industry. Firms that sign up to this Charter are pledging to be the best businesses in the sector.

As a signatory of the Women in Finance Charter Earth Capital (EC) is required to commit to a number of actions to promote gender diversity and inclusion. EC pledges to promote gender diversity and inclusion by:

  • Having a senior executive, the Chief Sustainability Officer who reports directly to the CEO on this issue and both are responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion.
  • Ensuring there is female representation for every role advertised and 100% unbiased resourcing practices, including: equal opportunities; gender mixed agencies; mix of male and female assessors; recruitment training for hiring managers.
  • Setting an overall company target of at least 30% female colleagues at every level of the business by mid 2021.
  • We will publish our progress annually against these targets in reports. In addition part of the executive bonus scheme will be linked to delivery against these internal targets on gender diversity.
