Eurosif, the pan-European sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) membership organisation, has appointed Flavia Micilotta as its new executive director. Micilotta joins from the Brussels-based Foreign Trade Association.
Micilotta started her career in sustainability working for Deloitte’s sustainability department in Florence while completing her masters in environmental management and CSR reporting.
“Very early on I worked as a CSR analyst for one of the leading rating agencies in Europe, Vigeo group,” says Micilotta. “This experience enabled me to assess the different values of sustainability across industries and sectors and motivated me to specialise in responsible investing.”
Micilotta is one of the founding members of the UN Global Compact in Belgium and a former board director of the Belgian Sustainable Investment Forum, Belsif.
“I was greatly inspired by the founding of the UN Global Compact by Kofi Annan and was convinced by the role corporate accountability and responsibility have to play to help change business dynamics and feed a more sustainable economy,” she explains.
In her new position, she is aiming to “bring forward SRI and its potential to the core of Europe’s legislative and political process in order to help it to fulfil its mission”.
