Want to go into environmental stuff, whether it be ESG finance, green projects, or anything else. Apart from trying to get assigned to relevant projects, is there anything else I could be doing to get exposure in this field? I read odd research here and there but don’t know what I can do proactively.

I.e. is that new ESG certification by CFA association a legit thing worth spending money for, or just another money grabbing scheme?

Question for consultants:
