AVPN November Webinar: Fostering Innovation and Creating Impact via Sustainable and Responsible Investments


Companies with good environmental, social and governance (ESG) management often perform better, and deliver superior financial as well as social returns over time.  Investing with a sustainability lens is therefore gaining more interest and traction.  In fact, it is estimated that over 90 of the world’s 100 largest investment managers have committed to (ESG) considerations into investment decisions, ownership and reporting by becoming signatories to the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI), a UN-backed initiative. Additionally, Sustainable and Responsible investments can also be a strong driver for innovation.

In this webinar, we learned from two AVPN members who are leaders in this arena. Schroders, one of the largest asset managers in the world, shared their experience and approach to sustainable investments. ETF Partners shared their approach to investing in companies with innovative technology, as well as a strong environmental and social focus.

The webinar focused on the following topics:

  • Sustainable and Responsible Investment approaches.
  • Sustainable and Responsible Investment opportunities and challenges.
  • Examples of Innovative Companies with a strong technology and sustainability focus.
