EIA’s International SRI Conference – Advert
Thursday, 24th August 2006 at 1:08 pm

The Ethical Investment Association’s International SRI Conference, Ready, Set, GO! is Australasia’s largest 2 day gathering of Sustainable Responsible Investment (SRI) and Ethical Investment professionals.

Environmental, social and governance issues = serious business and the upcoming EIA conference will explore these issues in-depth through a range of specialist workshops with a host of globally recognised investment and business experts.

Over the last two years, there has been a major acceleration in understanding of the nexus between investment and sustainability in the business, political and social arenas.

The recently announced United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment provide some important lessons for businesses wanting to successfully attract long term investment support and stakeholder confidence.

Instigated by the United Nations Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, in early 2005 they provide a menu of possible actions by institutional investors for incorporating ESG issues into mainstream investment decision-making and ownership practices.

Steve Waygood, Chair of the UK Social Investment Forum, was directly involved in the development of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment and will be speaking at the EIA’s upcoming International SRI Conference to be held in Sydney on Thursday 21 & Friday 22 September.

This Conference will bring you up to date on critical issues influencing investment decisions today such as climate change, industrial relations, bribery and corruption and water management.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in specialist workshops including one on collaborative engagement which explores how institutional investors are seeking to address corporate behaviour which causes harm to society, the environment and the bottom line.

This Conference has been designed for:
– Senior Management Executives
– Chief Finance Officers
– Researchers & Analysts
– Business Development Managers
– Corporate Governance Specialists
– Corporate Communications & Investor Relations
– Government Relations

International Sustainable Responsible Investment Conference
21 & 22 September 2006, Darling Harbour, Sydney
