Press release: Cecilia Cisana new board member for Eurosif

We are pleased to announce that one of Swesif’s board members, Cecilia Cisana, was elected to the board at the Eurosif Annual General Meeting and General Assembly held on 11 April. Three more new members joined the board at the same time: Helena Charrier (FIR, France), Pablo Esteban (Spainsif) and Verena Menne (FNG, Germany).

“I am delighted to welcome Cecilia, Helena, Pablo, and Verena to the Eurosif Board, and I look forward to working with them closely and to supporting the Board during this crucial next phase for Eurosif,” commented Aleksandra Palinska, Eurosif’s Executive Director. “We will continue to develop the organisation to ensure its growth and deliver on Eurosif’s mission to promote sustainable development through financial markets.”

Cisana says she is both honoured and excited to have been elected to the Eurosif board. “With a broad understanding of investor ESG needs and market drivers for sustainable investments across Europe, I look forward to contributing to strong member collaboration within the Eurosif community,” she adds.

“Swesif became a member of Eurosif in 2022 and we welcome the opportunity to deepen our engagement with peers in Europe by representation to the Eurosif Board,” comments Jennie Ahren, Chair of Swesif’s Board. “We recently celebrated 20 years as a forum for sustainable investments, and aim to extend collaborations with relevant stakeholders to ensure that we keep a relevant position in this rapidly evolving field. I feel confident that Cecilia Cisana has both the expertise and the commitment to represent our members in Brussels.”

The Eurosif AGM also took the opportunity to thank all outgoing board members: Will Oulton, Andrea Gonzalez Gonzalez, Francesco Bicciato, James Alexander and Susanne Bolin-Gartner for their dedication and years of service, during which the association has expanded to incorporate new European markets and made many structural and organisational improvements.
