Representing the industry

 

Committees

Our top priority is to serve the interests of our members and the industry in general. We do this through establishing a number of committees and working groups, made up of members selected for their skills and experience.

Current committees are dedicated to corporate governance, due diligence, performance measurement, public affairs, reporting, research, secondary markets & liquidity, tax, and training & education.

Advisory Councils

INREV has two advisory councils. The Investor Advisory Council advises the CEO on current issues affecting the industry in Europe, introduces new ideas to INREV, and profiles new initiatives that will benefit all members.

The Fund Manager Advisory Council acts as a sounding board to the CEO, provides fund manager input on future initiatives, and increases participation by fund managers in INREV's activities.

Management Board

INREV's management board guides the association’s strategy. The management board meets regularly to discuss and address industry developments. Many management board members also participate in INREV’s committees and working groups.
