adelphi supported the foundation and establishment of Eurosif, the European umbrella association of forums for sustainable and socially responsible investments. Through the numerous national forums, Eurosif represents several hundred financial service providers on the European level where it becomes intensively involved in the political process.
In one of Eurosif’s first projects, adelphi was also involved in compiling core data on the markets for sustainable investments in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Moreover, as part of a Europe-wide comparison, a historic review of the relevant markets in the three countries was drafted. adelphi also analysed and passed comment on the EU Commission’s "Greepn Paper on Corporate Social Responsibility" on behalf of Eurosif in order to contribute to the development of the European agenda in this area from the perspective of sustainable investors and financial service providers.
