10 Year Global Workshop Series - San Francisco

Signatories, regional stakeholders and partners are invited to join the consultation on our Blueprint for Responsible Investment in San Francisco.  Investment Practices and Reporting Director of the PRI Kris Douma will lead the consultation and present findings from the PRI’s signatory satisfaction survey and the PRI’s impact evaluation report. The outcomes of these discussion themes will be collated regionally and presented at PRI in Person Conference between 6-8 September in Singapore.

The agenda will also include a demonstration of the PRI’s new collaboration platform and a session on what other major economies are doing to mitigate climate risks post COP21 and the PRI’s role in supporting the FSB Taskforce on climate disclosure.
