On October 29th we are hosting an event for Responsible Investment Week (details and RSVP here) and very much looking forward to the conversation with Catherine Philogène of RBC Global Asset Management and Dr. Margaret McKee of the Sobey School of Business at SMU. We will be covering the importance of Environmental, Social and Governance screens in investment management and why sustainability is top of mind for asset managers and educators alike.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (which we've written about before here) are 17 goals whose achievement by 2030 would create a better and more sustainable future for all. The goals are clear and concise and provide easy actionable steps that we can all take to move the dial on these core issues facing the world.
Wanting to do more than just talk about sustainability we have committed to Goal #15: Life on Land and its action step "plant a tree and help protect the environment" and will be planting a tree for every person in attendance - we hope to see you there!
