Eurosif works as a partnership of Europe-based national Sustainable Investment Fora (SIFs) with the direct support of their network which spans over 400 Europe-based organisations drawn from the sustainable investment industry value chain. These organisations include institutional investors, asset managers, financial services, index providers and ESG research and analysis firms totalling over €20 trillion in total assets.
Eurosif’s members, the Sustainable Investment Forums, or SIFs, are membership-based sustainable and responsible investment organisations. They work to promote a broader adoption of Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) practices and more generally for a broader adoption of sustainability matters into financial markets and the investment chain.
In 2021, Eurosif migrated to a new governance model after several months of hard work and discussions within the Board. The new governance brings significant benefits to the members of our national SIFs and is intended to enhance the voice of membership at EU level. As such, we hope to more effectively contribute to the development of the European SRI and ESG market. Under this new situation, the status of “Member Affiliate” has ended. When a national SIF exists locally, membership of Eurosif will stem from membership of a national SIF.
Eurosif observers are SIFs who aim to become full members of Eurosif. This temporary status is limited in time as the ultimate goal for the observers is to become full members of Eurosif. The observers do not have the right to vote at the Eurosif General Assembly, but they can attend and take part in Eurosif workshops and activities.
