    Stockholm (NordSIP) – Ilmarinen announced the appointment of Karoliina Lindroos (Pictured) as its new Head of Responsible Investment. Lindroos will start her new role at the Finnish mutual pension insurance company on August 31st.

    She joins from FinnFund, the state-owned Finnish investment company for sustainable economic and social development, where she worked as an Environmental and Social Adviser and as a Senior Environmental and Social Adviser between 2016 and 2019 and since 2019, respectively. Prior to this, she worked as a consultant at Indufor between 2009 and 2016, focusing on sustainable forest management.
