Investment & Pensions Europe: Eurosif launches strategy review in light of ESG regulatory changes

Eurosif, the Brussels-based pan-European sustainable investment organisation, has launched a strategic review to inform its future mandate, including how to best support implementation of EU sustainable finance measures, it announced today.

The review was to cover “strategy governance”, organisational structure, membership, mission and objectives, and was expected to conclude by the end of April, Eurosif said in a statement.

“Over the past two years, there have been significant advances in the development of a world-leading sustainable investment policy and regulatory framework driven by the European Commission,” the group said.

Eurosif said the strategic review would help the organisation decide how best to support implementation of the EU’s sustainable finance measures at the national level, which presented challenges and opportunities.

“The board’s view is that these opportunities lie primarily with the member SIFs, but also include other varied legitimate interests including from the finance industry, civil society, NGOs and academia,” it said.

The review is being carried out by Eurosif’s board with the help of Thierry Philipponnat, former chairman of the French Sustainable Investment Forum (FIR) and former head of civil society organisation Finance Watch.
