Eurosif appoints new senior Policy adviser

17 April 2023

Eurosif, the European Sustainable Investment Forum, has appointed Pierre Garrault as the organisation’s new Senior Policy Adviser.

With over seven years of experience in EU financial services and sustainable finance, Pierre joins Eurosif from climate think-tank E3G, where in his role as Policy Advisor he led the work on climate risks, sustainability indicators, and greenwashing, aiming to efficiently channel EU private investments towards a sustainable transition. Before that, he acted as a Brussels liaison for the French asset management association (AFG), focusing on EU sustainable finance regulations and capital markets. He also worked for a consultancy firm focusing on financial services and in the European Parliament.

Aleksandra Palinska, Executive Director of Eurosif, said: “I am delighted to welcome Pierre to our team in this important role for our organization as well as for the continuing development of the European sustainable finance agenda. His expertise and knowledge will be instrumental, particularly in the context of the forthcoming review of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the recently launched ESAs’ consultation on the review of SFDR Delegated Regulation. As an experienced EU public affairs professional, Pierre will work closely with me on advising the EU policy makers on how to accelerate the EU sustainable finance agenda striving for ambitious and implementable rules.    

Pierre Garrault commented: “I am excited to join Eurosif’s team as its Senior Policy Adviser. The European sustainable finance space is about to enter a new phase, with increased demand for sustainable investments, the rolling out of extensive regulatory requirements, and upcoming elections that will reshape the EU’s green strategy. In this context, Eurosif’s role is key in bringing together the voice of Europe-based investors, to provide both ambitious proposals on sustainable finance and the necessary expertise for their implementation. I am very much looking forward to working with Eurosif’s team and members to support this agenda.”
