Alejandro Litovsky is the Founder & CEO of the Earth Security Group, which he founded in 2011 to pioneer new analytical approaches to mobilise global investors and multinational companies to invest strategically in the resource security of countries around the world.
Over the past 20 years he has worked extensively as an advisor to global companies, banks and governments in developing strategic approaches to global sustainability challenges.
Prior to founding ESG, between 2005-2010 he held senior positions at London-based sustainability consultancies, AccountAbility and Volans, working at the interface of impact investors, multilateral banks and the private sector in emerging markets to promote sustainable business models in finance, energy, infrastructure and agriculture. He worked at Shell International’s Future Scenarios team in London in 2004 and has since then contributed regularly to the future scenarios community.
From 1999-2003, prior to moving to Europe, he managed a portfolio of sustainable investments at the Buenos Aires office of the Swiss-based AVINA Foundation – an impact fund investing in sustainable business models and initiatives across Latin America. Between 1998-1999 he worked with FARN, Argentina's leading resource governance think tank, in the context of the collapse of the country's commercial fisheries, designing and facilitating dialogues between fishing conglomerates, international companies, local port processors and authorities, workers' trade unions, and policy-makers to identify new policy paths for sustainable fisheries investment.
He holds an MSc in Political Sociology from the London School of Economics (LSE), where in 2004 he received LSE’s Hobhouse Memorial Prize for highest academic achievement, and a BA in International Relations from Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Argentina, where he was awarded in 1999 the gold medal for the highest academic performance. In 2012, he was awarded the Global Responsible Leadership Award by the BMW Foundation.
