Company Updates

  • Mike Bloomberg, UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy on Climate Solutions, today announced that Macquarie Group CEO Shemara Wikramanayake is one of the founding members of the Climate Finance Leadership Initiative (CFLI).

    Formed by Mike Bloomberg at the request of the United Nations, the CFLI will work to support the acceleration of investments in clean energy and climate resilient projects around the world, aligned to the delivery of the private financing objectives in the Paris Agreement.

    "The faster we can accelerate investment in projects that both reduce emissions and create jobs, the more progress we can make reducing the health and economic risks that come with climate change,” said Bloomberg. “This initiative will help us do that, by bringing more capital to the fight against climate change."

    Other founding members of the CFLI include AXA CEO Thomas Buberl, HSBC CEO John Flint, Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund CIO Hiro Mizuno, Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon, and Enel CEO Francesco Starace.

Flexibility

Our workforce is becoming increasingly diverse, and technology continues to evolve to allow greater freedom to perform work from different locations and in different ways.  Macquarie aims to facilitate flexible working arrangements where possible to support our people achieve their career and personal goals. 

Because we recognise that working flexibly means different things to different people, flexible working exists across Macquarie in many forms. A flexible working arrangement may include for example, changes to hours, locations and patterns of work, or access to leave without pay, study and exam leave or a range of other flexible options dependent on circumstance and feasibility. 

Ultimately, Macquarie empowers its staff to manage their professional commitments to suit their own personal situation, and equips its people managers to lead a flexible workforce. 

Other initiatives to support flexible working include childcare centres, backup child/adult/eldercare, nursing mothers’ facilities in all regions, return-to-work coaching for parents and employee network groups for families and carers in many locations. The vast majority of Macquarie staff are able to access some form of company paid parental leave provisions. Read more about our parental leave offering.



Macquarie’s ongoing commitment to workforce diversity ensures its business remains innovative, sustainable and continues to meet the evolving needs of its clients.

In every one of our offices across 25 countries around the world, you’ll find individuals from varied backgrounds with different ways of thinking, different skills and different experiences.  At Macquarie we value the innovation and creativity that diversity of thought brings.

Macquarie's range of experiences, skills and views are key strengths and critical to the wide range of services the Group delivers across the globe as well as understanding the communities in which we operate.
