Bringing together leading investment professionals to discuss practical strategies for sustainable investing.

We will hear from pioneering asset owners who will share best practices and lessons learned from their own journeys with sustainable investing. Leading investment managers will then share their insight on existing opportunities to seize growth and minimize risk through ESG investments. During the event, participants will have a chance to discuss the lessons, challenges, and concerns they’ve faced, and connect with sustainable investment managers and consultants for future collaborations or market development.

The forum will put a spotlight on WRI's Sustainable Investing Initiative and encourage market players to join our coalition for mainstreaming sustainable investing.
