Sustainable finance has rapidly evolved over the last few years, and it is now at a turning point where the journey needs to be intensified and streamlined. The LSFI, as Luxembourg’s coordinating entity in sustainable finance, plays a key role in supporting this process. I am committed to work to advance the transition towards sustainability and, especially, to help the Luxembourg financial sector by providing its players with the instruments and guidance to do so while aiming to achieve a positive impact in our economies and society”. – Nicoletta Centofanti, LSFI’s General Manager.
The appointment of the general manager, which was approved by the LSFI’s board on 28th February 2023, aims to continue to reinforce and to consolidate the role of the Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Initiative.
