Eurosif appoints executive director
Victor van Hoorn has been appointed executive director of Eurosif, the European sustainable and responsible investment association, joining from communications agency Hume Brophy where he currently serves as head of financial services in Brussels. He will take up his new duties on 28 August.
van Hoorn's hire follows a strategic review carried out by Eurosif in 2019. The association specified that its new executive director will lead the implementation of its recommendations and strengthen the links between Eurosif’s members across Europe and the EU’s institutions to support the implementation of the EU sustainable finance action plan, the EU green deal and the renewed sustainable finance strategy that the European Commission will unveil by year-end.
Other challenges await Eurosif over the next three years including the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, the EU Taxonomy, the EU Benchmarks Regulation and the EcoLabel.
