The first PRI Nordic Signatory Meeting takes place May 5-7 in Copenhagen followed by the third annual PRI Academic Conference. Erik Alhøj, Managing Director of GES Investment Services Denmark, will participate in both events.
The purpose of the PRI Nordic Signatory Meeting is for signatories in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland to meet each other and discuss the possibility of setting up a PRI Nordic Network. Possible topics for discussion include any common ESG issues, regulatory issues related to RI and implementation of the Principles across different asset classes.
The PRI Academic Conference is arranged in collaboration with the Centre for CSR at the Copenhagen Business School. Under the theme “Mainstreaming responsible investment”, it will gather 100 leading thinkers (academics, PRI signatories, investment practitioners and students) from around the world. The PRI will also present the first PRI Academic Research Awards, sponsored by the Danish Government.
