The Academic Network Conference brings academics and investors together to discuss the latest development in responsible investment research and how they can be applied in practice.
The PRI will be offering a suite of exciting sponsorship opportunities for the Academic Network Conference 2020. Each package will offer organisations the opportunity to gain exposure to peers and thought leaders through branding, hosting networking engagements, supporting prizes and bursaries. The sponsorship brochure will be launched in January, please do not hesitate to contact us to receive a copy.
The changes to capital markets needed to meet the global sustainability objectives must be underpinned by high quality research. The articles here represent a cornerstone of PRI’s efforts to foster research and to build bridges between the academic and practitioner communities.
High quality research can inform practice and give a better understanding of ESG risks, opportunities and impacts, thereby increasing the effectiveness of investment practices. However, as navigating academic research can be a challenge for investors, the PRI Academic Network Advisory Committee has curated a selection of rigorous and high-quality academic studies.
Institutional investors are increasingly realising that income inequality – the gap in income and wealth between the very affluent and the rest of society – has become one of the most noteworthy socio-economic issues of our time.
