Meet the GreenBuzz Zurich Volunteer Team!

We are proud to have a great and diverse team of sustainability professionals supporting our activities with their expert knowledge.

Meet Camilla Leopoldino, our Topic Lead for Sustainable Finance. Camilla work as an ESG analyst for Vontobel, and she is passionate about sustainability and business strategy. She supports GreenBuzz on events about the finance sector.

Why did you choose to join the GreenBuzz Zurich team and what role do you play within the organisation?

I chose the Greenbuzz family because of its passion towards sustainability. On my very first event, I realized I had found not only a network of sustainability professionals, but a network of passionate individuals that got together because they wanted to make the world a better place. Today, I help Greenbuzz to brainstorm finance-related topics for events and volunteer on events 

In your opinion, what do you see as the biggest challenge for sustainability within your industry? 

The industry is still struggling with availability and reliability of non-financial ESG data. As much growth we have seen in 2020, there is still a long way to go. 

And on a more optimistic note, what is a positive development within your industry with regards to sustainability (either a solution to the above-mentioned challenge or a future outlook towards positive change)? 

Not long ago, sustainable investments were considered a niche area and very often wrongly defined as philanthropic or non-performing. Today this niche has more than doubled in AuM, and further regulatory changes are pushing for better sustainable accountability and transparency. We are on the pathway towards mainstream sustainable finance.
