Responsible Investment Week
Oct 23 – Oct 27 all-day

Canada’s 4th annual RI Week: October 23-27, 2017

Event schedule coming soon! 

Canada’s fourth annual Responsible Investment Week will take place from October 23-27, 2017. Responsible Investment Week is a week dedicated to education and awareness about responsible investment (RI). The Responsible Investment Association (RIA) is coordinating a week of events across Canada to promote learning about environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) issues that affect investments.

RI Week events will explore opportunities to invest in a more sustainable future, and provide attendees with opportunities to network with industry leaders, hear from ESG experts and catch up on the latest issues, trends and developments in the field.

Become an RI Week Partner

Do you, your employer, or any of your affiliate organizations wish to support responsible investing? Great! We invite you to host an event to promote learning about ESG issues and responsible investment. These events may focus on responsible investment trends and approaches more broadly or any environmental, social or governance issue. They may be geared to explicit constituents groups or more broadly/publicly oriented.

If you are interested in hosting an RI Week event or would like more information, please contact RIA Director of Programs Julie Ambachtsheer: [email protected]
