Flagship Event to Launch ‘economie’
Thursday, 23rd March 2006 at 12:03 pm

A London based organisation dedicated to the education, promotion and development of socially responsible investment (SRI) has gone global.

Called ‘economie’ it was set up late 2005 with the aim of creating a world where investment with social, environmental and ethical consideration is the universal norm.

Headquartered in London, economie is made up of international partners from 20 countries, including Australia, Argentina and Norway, Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, South Africa, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA.

At the heart of the organisation’s ethos is the belief that much more can be achieved by working together than by standing apart.

Through a flagship event, eco6, economie aims to raise global awareness and transform attitudes towards the fast growing economic movements of SRI and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

The conference, in Zurich on 9th and 10th October 2006, will also encourage experts to make their advice accessible to the public and will demonstrate that ethics and profits go hand in hand and can shape a mass movement for change.

The themes, “SRI – Just Another Marketing Ploy?” and “CSR – Fact or Fiction”, will seek to address attitudes to these economic movements and to promote channels that facilitate social and environmental change.

Brian Harrison Spence, the Founder and Development Director of economie says the approach to promoting SRI and CSR is to talk directly to individual investors themselves, as well to interested organisations, be they financial advisers, corporates, or charities.

He says eco6 is more than simply an investment conference and is the only event to bring together the inextricably linked strands of SRI and CSR, giving delegates ‘the bigger picture’.
