As part of the Brussels-based Finance Programme team, a particular focus of Dr Anna Irmisch’s work is net-zero alignment and climate impact measurement of the private financial sector, e.g. via investor engagement, ratings, data usage, and disclosure frameworks.
Before joining the ECF, Anna conducted environmental, social and governance (ESG) assessments of listed companies, and led engagement dialogues with their managers worldwide on behalf of Scandinavian institutional investors, where she concentrated on climate change mitigation and utility sector decarbonization, as well as improving transparency. Her 10+ years of experience also include working for an NGO on European sustainable finance policy and regulation. Prior to that, she has had roles in international development with a focus on innovation, as a strategy consultant in the software industry, and in academia on sustainability ratings.
