Event - SRI Conference

The 29th Annual conference for sustainable and responsible investing will take place at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, from November 1-4, 2018. Be part of the change be part of the SRI community’s most important annual event!

There is ever-increasing interest in sustainable, responsible, and impact investing. The SRI Conference and Community welcomes those new to SRI and long-standing supporters. Together, we are harnessing the power of capital to address our most pressing social, environmental, and cultural challenges while generating financial return.

The new CEO of The SRI Conference says he is committed to continuing the conference’s incredible legacy, while at the same time, keeping an eye on the future. He want to broaden the sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) movement through the new SRI Community, an inclusive ecosystem designed to foster year-round collaboration and communication and create lasting change. I’ll be sharing more about the SRI Community during the conference.

NOTEWORTHY STATISTICS

SRI investments total $8.7 trillion or 25%  of U.S. assets under management. This represents a 33% increase since 2014. A total of 75% of investors interested in SRI Figures are as of 2016.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The SRI Conference is an inclusive ecosystem of diverse stakeholders — including financial advisors, investment professionals, researchers, members of mission-driven organizations, and others — who share a common interest in sustainable, responsible, and impact investing. No other SRI event offers these stakeholders the educational, skill-building, and networking opportunities afforded by The SRI Conference. That’s why so many attendees return year after year.
