Moderator: Paul Chandler, Director of Stewardship, PRI
In the nearly two years since the PRI released Active Ownership 2.0, we have seen early signs of a step change in investors’ use of stewardship, as concerns around systemic sustainability issues have grown. From new directors on the board of ExxonMobil, to engagement with the Brazilian government on deforestation, to further emphasis on corporate lobbying, this practitioner-focused session will provide an overview of some of the key developments in how investors are using their influence to shape sustainability outcomes.
