Greenstone to speak at Responsible Investment Forum in New York

RIFNY23-newGreenstone is proud to be speaking at the Responsible Investment Forum: New York 2023 event on 1-2 March. Held in New York across 2 days, this event will bring together institutional investors and fund managers to explore opportunities in ESG; from value creation to implementing an effective ESG strategy.

On Day 2 of the event, Greenstone’s Chief Product Officer, David Wynn will be moderating a keynote panel session on the ‘Rising Importance of Standardised ESG Metrics and Frameworks’. David will be joined by speakers from Revelstoke Capital Partners, Kohlberg & Company, Oak Hill Advisors and Jeffries to discuss how focusing on key metrics – including carbon, financial and governance – can create long term financial performance.

Key topics at this years’ event will include the push towards net-zero commitments and a heavier focus on climate action, an exploration of the ESG regulatory landscape, practical steps for analysing data sets for value creation, streamlining of universal ESG frameworks and metrics, key learnings from our European counterparts, and the budding growth of impact as its own asset class.

About the Responsible Investment Forum New York

The Responsible Investment Forum New York returns for its seventh year to bring together responsible investing professionals to explore opportunities in ESG.

ESG issues are at the heart of all PEI’s editorial coverage, with its reporters consistently following and scrutinising the ways in which managers in the US are adopting responsible investment practices and what LPs are looking for as they consider investing in private equity. PEI, partnering with the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), continues to prove itself as a thought-leader in this area, and is at the forefront of covering the growth of ESG in North American private equity.
