We recently held our 14th TBLI CONFERENCE™ in Europe (20 events in total, including TBLI CONFERENCE™ ASIA) and I must say it was one of the best events we ever held. There was a large turnout of asset managers, owners and service providers in the ESG and Impact Investing space, in spite of the market difficulties. It reminded us why TBLI CONFERENCE™ is known as the leading convening force of asset owners and asset managers for educational outreach, networking and business opportunity development around ESG and Impact Investing.
TBLI ESG LEADERS AWARDS
The ESG Leader Awards not only reward but also aim at inspiring the financial industry towards sustainable investment. Together with dedicated sponsors, TBLI handed out 5 prestige industry trophies at the TBLI CONFERENCE™ EUROPE 2012 in Zurich on November 8-9, 2012. During the Grand Dinner five Awards were presented to companies or organisations whose efforts further the cause of sustainable investment and who demonstrate exemplary performance in the field of ESG and Impact investing.
