Location: Skandia, Lindhagensgatan 86, 106 55 Stockholm, Sweden

The PRI Forums, a new series of regional one-day events exploring the latest responsible investment trends and practices from around the world, will be coming to Stockholm on Tuesday, 4th February.

The PRI Nordic Forum will cover a wide spectrum of the PRI’s latest work – from SDG alignment, to ESG issues, to investment practices. Designed to inform and to facilitate discussion, the Forum will provide a valuable update on the PRI’s work and an opportunity for knowledge-sharing between key stakeholders in the responsible investment community.

Investor action on climate change – identified by PRI’s signatories as their highest priority ESG issue – will have a strong focus, with coverage of both TCFD and the Inevitable Policy Response. We’ll also be sharing PRI thinking, tools and guides, including new research on ESG integration in fixed income, and the latest updates on European policy.
