CBSR Sustainability Investment Forum (Event)

This event will take place on Monday, October 15, 2012, 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM (MDT) in Calgary, Alberta. Explore how investors assess market value and ways to gauge how CSR practices add to that value. Canadian Business for Social Responsibility (CBSR) is pleased to host world-class experts who will stretch our knowledge on sustainability investments and then lead us through some open dialogue to explore what this means for Alberta's businesses.

Jane Ambachtsheer, Partner and Global Head of Responsible Investment at Mercer Investments, will provide some background on the topic and challenge attendees to increase our understanding of sustainability investment. Jane’s presentation will be followed by discussions lead by sustainable investment, investor relations, and CSR experts (see Speaker biographies).

Participants are encouraged to bring their questions and opinions and to join in the discussion during facilitated afternoon dialogue sessions.

This event particularly targets investor relations professionals, investment professionals, people working in CSR-related roles, and academics.

The Forum aims to explore the value and nuances of sustainability investments by engaging:

1. Business CSR/Sustainability, Investment, and Investor Relations professionals in discussion around core elements and benefits of integrated reporting, i.e. quantifying the value of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations. 2. University students and members of Faculty to stimulate thoughts on the topic.

In the afternoon, the tables will be both literally and figuratively turned so attendees can discuss the morning’s presentations.

The Forum will conclude with a networking Reception.

Featuring Speakers and Panelists from:

Alberta Invesment Management Corporation, Raymond James Ltd., University of Calgary, Enbridge, CBSR, Cenovus, and NEI Investments.

The cost for the event is $350 + tax CBSR for members & associates and $400 + tax for non-members

Each paid registration covers the cost of entry for one university student or faculty member.

This event is presented by CBSR in collaboration with the University of Calgary’s Enbridge Centre for Corporate Sustainability.
