20th TBLI CONFERENCE™ & ESG LEADERS AWARDS 2012

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.

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.
