Update: Webinar recording here.
The financial industry’s increased emphasis on and adoption of sustainable investing raises several important questions: Is this trend a precursor to fundamental change in the theory and practice of investment? Is it just a passing fad? Or worse, an intentional exercise in “greenwashing”?
If it in fact represents a fundamental change in how investment is to be conducted, how do asset managers know which financial products and services and which asset managers are truly addressing the major, material systemic social and environmental challenges of our time (e.g. climate change and income inequality)?
These are big questions that require on-going and in-depth discussion. To help continue the conversation, The Investment Integration Project (TIIP) and Blue Marble Evaluation are co-hosting an online discussion on July 10th at 11am ET with some of the leading experts in evaluation and system-level investing. This will be an open and engaging conversation on what the financial industry can be doing to better evaluate their systemic impact, with a specific focus on large asset ownership.
The discussion participants include:
- William Burckart, Co-founder and President, TIIP
- Mirtha Kastrapeli, Founder and CEO, Beyond Alpha
- SteveLydenberg, Founder and CEO, TIIP
- Glenn Page, President/CEO, SustainaMetrix
- Michael Patton, Founder and Director, Utilization-Focused Evaluation
