Time: 09:00 - 17:30
Location: Aegon Asset Management, Aegonplein 6, 2591 TV The Hague, The Netherlands

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 The Netherlands on 21 November.

The PRI Forum The Hague will cover a wide-spectrum of PRI’s latest work – from policy to ESG issues to investment practices. Designed to inform and 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 in the Benelux region.

Investor action on climate change – identified by PRI’s signatories as their highest priority ESG issue – will have a strong focus. We will cover TCFD as a risk management framework, investor action that is imperative in preparing financial markets for climate-related policy and regulatory risk, as well as the latest update on the new EU Taxonomy. We’ll also be sharing PRI thinking, tools and guides, including the new PRI sovereign bond guidance.
