Marcello CollaHead of Administration, Control and Sustainability at Etica Sgr and O.I.B.R.(Italian Foundation for Business Reporting)
Marcello Colla has spent his whole career in Sustainable Investing. Passionate about the links between economy and values, he graduated in Economics with the University of Parma in 2001, with a thesis about ethical evaluation of bonds.
Since 2002, he has been working for Etica Sgr, up to now the only Italian asset management company managing only sustainable investing funds, where he is now Head of Administration, Finance and Control.
He’s in charge of the whole reporting process, both financial and non-financial. Since 2011 Etica Sgr has been issuing an Integrated Report, and he is in charge of the whole integrated reporting process, including stakeholder engagement activities. Meanwhile, he advocates for sustainable investing and sustainability and (more recently) integrated reporting, underlying the strong link between the two in several speeches at universities and conferences.
He has been member of the GRI Stakeholder Council since 2016 until 2018, and has been involved in the activities of the Italian Network for Business Reporting (now becoming Italian Organism for Business Reporting), among other projects as a member of the working group that wrote the Integrated Thinking Handbook.
