Antonios Sfakiotakis

Leading Specialist, Global collaboration, Sustainability solutions , Sitra


Antonios works to ensure that Sitra’s climate, circular economy and nature solutions promote the ambitious implementation of the EU Green Deal. Blazing a trail towards a carbon-neutral circular economy is a joint effort that will benefit not only Finland and Europe but also the world as a whole.


In his previous roles in the European Parliament and in the Finnish Permanent Representation to the EU, Antonios has been closely involved with the drafting of European environmental and climate policy. During Finland’s EU presidency, he co-ordinated the EU member states’ positions on promoting the circular economy and on global measures to strengthen biodiversity during the coming decade.

Antonios has been positively surprised by the broad support among European societies and the business sector for the transition to carbon neutrality. He hopes to see an equally strong focus on improving biodiversity. Antonios has a master’s degree in Political Science from Stockholm University.

What else?

Your head, arms and legs are meant to be used. Antonios believes that weightlifting and reading old books should be civic duties.
