Future-Proofing Infrastructure Investing: New York Forum

Future-Proofing Infrastructure Investing: delivering value through RI - New York

Growing numbers of institutional investors are taking environmental, social and governance factors into account, and infrastructure has entered the spotlight. Fund managers are being asked more and more to demonstrate responsible investment practices and good stewardship in their infrastructure portfolios. Direct investors are also increasingly seeing the added value of improving ESG performance in their assets.

Join the PRI, leading infrastructure investors and experts at one of our upcoming forums to hear discussion on ESG trends, the role of responsible investors in managing public infrastructure, and how responsible investment can benefit both the community and investors.

Who should attend?

  • Asset owners with direct or indirect infrastructure investments
  • Infrastructure investment managers
  • Investment advisors

This event is part of the PRI Infrastructure Forum series with events also taking place in Melbourne on 15 February 2018 and London on 18 April 2018.
