05 September 2022

The board of Eurosif is pleased to announce the appointment of Aleksandra Palinska as the new Executive Director of Eurosif. Aleksandra will take up post on the 19th of September 2022. She will lead the implementation of Eurosif’s long-term strategy to help shape and accelerate the development and implementation of the EU Sustainable Finance Agenda.

Eurosif aims to have a tangible impact on both advancing sustainable investment practices and encouraging the actions needed to address the climate crisis. Over the last three years, it has become a strong voice for the European sustainable investment community, representing its members across Europe and working closely with EU institutions in Brussels to advance EU public policy.

Will Oulton, Chair of Eurosif, said: “The Board is delighted to welcome Aleksandra to our organisation in this pivotal moment for sustainable finance in Europe. Her expertise and knowledge of the European regulatory and policy agenda will enable her to successfully lead Eurosif and deliver our long-term strategy, while acting as a bridge between EU policymakers, investors and Europe’s Sustainable Investment Forums and Associations. The Eurosif board and I look forward to working with Aleksandra.”

Aleksandra Palinska said: “I am excited to be joining Eurosif at this critical time when the EU sustainable finance rules are being finalised. An appropriate calibration and efficient implementation of sustainable finance rules is essential in the transition to a sustainable economy. Constructive dialogue and close cooperation between the financial industry, EU and national regulators and supervisors are now of paramount importance. This is also the time to take stock of how different pieces of the sustainable finance puzzle fit together and considerwhether adjustments are needed. Thanks to the trust the Eurosif Board bestowed on me, I will have the pleasure to actively participate in this process and steer the organisation into its next
phase of growth. I look forward to working closely with the Board and members of Eurosif and leading a talented team supporting the efficient development and implementation of sustainable finance across the EU.
