German ESG Market and UNPRI

Just gave two lectures on Impact Investing at FNG (German Social Investment Forum) in Berlin and Principles for Responsible Investment Initiative (PRI) at MN Services, Den Haag.

I was particularly excited to hear about the significant growth of ESG in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria, in the FNG report. PRI continues to grow in members, assets signing  the PRI, and many new initiatives including Impact Investing.

Hopefully all the asset owners and managers I met will join us at TBLI CONFERENCE in Zurich, November 8-9, 2012
