10 Year Global Workshop Series - Melbourne

In May and as part of its 10-year anniversary, the PRI will be holding a number of events in Australia. By joining us in Melbourne or Sydney signatories and stakeholders will get the opportunity to discuss the latest ESG factors impacting investment decision making and ownership practices. The PRI will also consult on our Blueprint for Responsible Investment, which will identify the critical, systemic risks and sustainability challenges and PRI’s role in addressing them over the next decade. The recommendations that result from these workshops will be presented at PRI in Person on 6-8 September in Singapore.

Please contact Anastasia Guha if you have any questions.
