PRI in Person 2017
SHAPING THE FUTURE OF RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT
In a period of rapid political and social change, it has never been more important to make the business case for responsible investment. This year’s conference will look in detail at ESG opportunities as well as risks; demonstrate the material impact of sustainability on investment strategy; and leave investors better equipped to take action.
As well as an informative and inspiring programme of keynotes and plenary sessions, the agenda will include three types of breakout session:
Action: Highly interactive, workshop-style sessions on action delegates can take to implement the Principles or improve performance.
Education: A more lecture-style format, providing information about new or evolving topics, with an opportunity for delegates to question the experts.
Debate: High-level discussion panels showcasing different perspectives on very new or controversial issues.
There will be a variety of side events scheduled around the conference, details of which will be available shortly. We anticipate a number of side events will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 27 September, and we encourage you to consider this when planning your travel.
The PRI supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As part of our Blueprint for Responsible Investment, we have committed to develop tools for investors to align their investment activities with the SDGs, and to map our own work against them. The coloured icons in our agenda below show which SDGs are relevant to particular sessions at PRI in Person.
