‘Reshaping the idea of traditional investing and looking beyond the standard risk-return relationship to generate positive social and environmental impact alongside financial return.’ This was, and still is, the premise and promise of Impact Investing.
We invite you to join us for an evening of discussion on Social Impact and Impact Investing sponsored by Tecno International.
Daniel Klier, CEO at ESG Book, will open the evening with a keynote speech on solutions that make ESG and Impact data more widely available and comparable for all market stakeholders. Professor Paolo Taticchi OMRI, our resident expert in sustainable practice with 15+ years of experience, will introduce the first-year results and white papers of the IMmPACT project.
Later, we will hear from our panel of experts across industries and academia. Chaired by Andrew Jack of the Financial Times, the panel will discuss their approaches to social impact measurement and management, new trends of Impact Investing, the challenges they have faced along the way and what they think the future of social impact measurement and Impact Investing looks like.
