RI New Zealand 2020 Online, 15, 17 & 18 September

Responsible investment continues its advance across global capital markets, with the COVID-19 pandemic only strengthening the conviction of global investors by underscoring the critical role that ESG issues play in the success of companies, economies and nations.

New Zealand is no different, with growing momentum in responsible investment and sustainable finance driven by a shifting focus by regulators, an increasing policy momentum around ESG issues, not least of which being climate change, as well as a growing desire by Kiwis to invest their money in line with their values.

RIAA will host its 11th annual RI New Zealand conference this year as an online conference (15, 17 & 18 September), and will additionally deliver an in-person conference event in early 2021 (3 March, Auckland).

The online sessions are FREE for RIAA members, non members ticket price is $50.
