About | Enrico Colombo

Enrico Colombo

Experienced professional in responsible investment, ESG and sustainability. Currently lead analyst and manager of Asia-Pacific research at Sustainalytics. Avid reader and occasional binge-watcher, I like cooking, travelling, practicing yoga and spending time outdoors.


Originally from Italy, I studied business at Bocconi University in Milan, spent an exchange semester in Shanghai, China and did a master’s in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

I started working as an ESG analyst at Sustainalytics in Frankfurt before moving to Sydney. I am a member of the Human Rights Working Group of Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) and participate in the work of the Australian Sustainable Finance Initiative.

I believe in the role and responsibility of business and finance to promote more sustainable practices and contribute to address the most pressing world challenges, particularly climate change and environmental degradation. I am thrilled to contribute to Altiorem and build a universal library of content to change finance for good!
