Ornella Cosomati

Leaders Europe 2023


Director of Sustainability Policy, Microsoft





Ornella leads Microsoft’s EU Sustainability policy engagement in circular economy, carbon reporting, and the current energy crisis, supporting the business in the design of Microsoft devices and servers so that they meet the requirements set by ecodesign rules at EU level, or in the reporting of the company’s GHG emissions in line with EU legislations. Ornella became interested in sustainability when she lived through the waste crisis in the region of Naples while in school. Once at university, she—alongside other students—set up an NGO to foster sustainability best practices across European universities.
