Sasja Beslik, Head of Sustainable Finance at Nordea, has been selected to join the World Economic Forum’s Expert Network, which brings together more than 5,000 world-leading experts.
“At Nordea we are already seeing substantial results as we integrate sustainability further into our core operations, policies and processes. In the World Economic Forum’s Expert Network, we can play a crucial role in the transition to a more sustainable world. It is a platform where we can gain and spread insight, knowledge and best practices among some of the world’s most important influencers. It creates an opportunity for true thought leadership in sustainable finance,” Sasja says.
The World Economic Forum’s Expert Network enables the foremost experts in academia, business, government, international organisations, civil society, the arts and the media to improve the state of the world by helping to shape the global agenda. With over 5,000 committed experts focusing on digital collaboration around key insight areas covering economies, industries and global issues, the network helps leaders in government, organisations, business and society to ask the right questions and make better decisions based on the latest research and knowledge.
Sasja, who has extensive experience in the field of sustainability and responsible investing, was appointed to the Expert Network as a specialist in the areas of Insurance and Asset Management as well as Sustainable Development. He is working to integrate sustainability into everything we do as Nordea invests heavily in sustainability and sustainable finance. As the largest bank in the Nordic region and one of the biggest in Europe, Nordea has a huge impact on society.
“Part of the transformation of Nordea is to understand the increasing importance of being a responsible corporate citizen and to act upon it. The financial sector has a huge global impact, which is both a great privilege and a great responsibility. Imagine what we as a sector can do if we put sustainability at the core of our business. I am very proud that we now have this opportunity to put sustainable finance on the global agenda,” Sasja says.
