Beyond Divestment: Responsible Investment Strategies for Universities and Colleges
June 5, 2015 | Vancouver, BC
As part of Responsible Investment (RI) Week in Canada, we are hosting a roundtable discussion about the steps that higher education institutions are taking to address sustainability issues in their endowment investments.
The aim of the event is to identify strategies for shifting the discussion on campus beyond divestment and towards the full spectrum of RI initiatives.
The event brings together university and college business officers, treasurers, trustees and governing board members from public and private universities and colleges across British Columbia. Participation is by invitation only.
Emphasis will be placed on fostering small group dialogue and identifying opportunities for cross-university collaboration on RI initiatives. Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences with a wide range of investment strategies to address sustainability issues that present material risks and opportunities to their endowments.
If you have any questions about the event, please contact Heather Hachigian (hhachigian [at] gmail.com) or Priya Bala Miller (pbalamiller [at] gmail.com).
