Olivier Jaeggi
Managing Director

Olivier Jaeggi is ECOFACT’s Managing Director.

He believes that the financial sector needs to adopt strategies that allow it to mitigate the risks and capitalize on the benefits of emerging opportunities related to sustainability and its challenges. Most of the world’s vehicles, homes, aircraft, and enterprises are insured and/or financed in one way or another. This implies a huge opportunity for the financial sector to influence a change in behaviors and business practices that would otherwise give rise to financial risk and threaten global growth.

Prior to founding ECOFACT in 1998, Olivier worked in credit risk control at UBS, where he oversaw environmental risk management. He graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich with a degree in environmental engineering and completed executive education programs at Harvard Business School and the University of Oxford. He is a member of the Sustainable Finance Working Group of the Institute of International Finance as well as the subject matter expert advisory group on reputational risk of the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association (PRMIA). He regularly contributes to the MIT Sloan Management Review’s sustainability blog. Olivier has been a guest lecturer at the University of Zurich and has also lectured at the ETH Zurich and other universities.

You may be falling behind

Large banks and insurers are integrating sustainability in their strategic objectives. Others could fall behind. Why is that a problem?
