US-Sustainable-Finance-Policy-Summit

Date: Thursday, October 17, 2019
Time: 2pm-5pm
Location: Newseum, 555 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington DC

The PRI and UNEP FI are organising a sustainable finance policy summit focused on responsible investment policy in the US and around the world.

Research by the PRI finds that across the world’s 50-largest economies, there are now 730 hard and soft-law policy revisions, across some 500 policy instruments that require or encourage ESG integration across the intermediation chain – half of which were introduced in the last three years. Progress on sustainable finance policy reforms has taken hold in most markets - including the EU, UK, Canada and China.

This summit will bring together senior policymakers, regulatory affairs professionals and investment professionals to participate in a discussion on global sustainable finance policy reform.

Speakers include:

  • Hiro Mizuno, Chief Investment Officer, GPIF
  • Mario Nava, Director, European Commission
  • Scott Mather, Chief Investment Officer, PIMCO
  • Sharon Hendricks, Chair of the Board, CalSTRS
  • Timothy Wilkins, Global Partner for Client Sustainability, Freshfields
  • Senator Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii (invited)
