Strategic Advisory Council

IEEP’s Strategic Advisory Council was established with the mandate to provide the organisation with accurate and diverse insights on the current reality of environmental policy. The Council consists of highly respected and accomplished individuals with a background in science, academia, and/or governance, who have been appointed by IEEP management and Board for a four-year term.

Members of this honorary assembly provide input and inspiration on new projects and activities and give feedback on the political and societal implications of the Institute’s pursuits. During their annual meeting, the Strategic Advisory Council is expected to give advice related to the strategic priorities of the Institute and external accountability issues linked to transparency and independence, as well as evaluating IEEP’s impact in line with its mandate.

The Council is headed by Ms Sirpa Pietikäinen, Member of the European Parliament and former Minister of the Environment of Finland, who also serves as an Honorary Chair of IEEP. Current members include:
