The secretariat for the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA) will transition from the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) to the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF). The GSIA is a collaboration of a collaboration of the seven largest sustainable investment membership organisations in the world, including Eurosif, US SIF and JSIF. GSIA’s key goals include driving sustainable investing and finance, and “positively influencing the policy arena” to advance sustainable investment and ensure financial services “play a key role in the drive to a more sustainable future”. The transition will see the alliance’s chair role transfer from RIAA CEO Simon O’Connor to UKSIF CEO James Alexander. “GSIA looks forward to the energy and direction that UKSIF and James will bring to this important collaboration between sustainable investment organisations”, it said. The alliance also underlined the “strong need” for alignment and convergence across geographies for its globally focused members to ensure that the financial services sector can “contribute strongly to a transition to a sustainable economy”.
