Boston Area Sustainability Group ushers in the new year with: Investing in Sustainability
How do investors use sustainability reporting and social impact mission to evaluate the value or risk of their investments? What do we need to know as CSR professionals? As potential investors ourselves?
Come meet, hear, and engage with our speakers for the evening:
Timothy Smith , SVP and Director of ESG Shareowner Engagement, Walden Asset Management. Investors with over $7 Trillion in AUM are now involved in Sustainable and Responsible Impact investing (SRI). Tim will describe the growth and impact of SRI and the responsiveness of companies to the sustainability message and agenda.
Susan Musinsky , Director Social Innovation Forum, Root Cause. Susan will share insights from her work to facilitate collaboration among leaders from nonprofits, philanthropy, government, and business to make progress on pressing social issues and how Root Cause’s model for investing in sustainability has evolved with time.
John Chaimanis, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Kendall Sustainable Infrastructure (KSI). Over $1 Trillion of renewable infrastructure investment is needed every year through 2030 to combat climate change. There are great returns and potential pitfalls along the way. John will share one way to invest, which generates outstanding cash yields with no correlation to public markets.
Kevin Lehman, Credit Analyst, Breckinridge Capital Advisors. The $3.7 trillion municipal bond market has long been used by state and local governments to finance public improvements such as water treatment plants, K-12 school facilities and hospitals. Kevin will share how municipal bonds offer sustainable investors the opportunity to invest in essential environmental and social projects and earn a market return through the relatively new but growing green bond market.
