10 Year Global Workshop Series - New York

Signatories, regional stakeholders and partners are invited to join the consultation on our Blueprint for Responsible Investment in New York. Director of Policy and Research at the PRI; Nathan Fabian will lead the consultation and present findings from the PRI’s signatory satisfaction survey and the PRI’s impact evaluation report. These results will feed into the discussion topics of the Blueprint session which will make up the consultation agenda.

The outcomes of these discussion themes will be collated regionally and presented at PRI in Person Conference between 6-8 September in Singapore. 

The agenda will also include a dedicated session on the PRI’s role in supporting the FSB Taskforce on climate disclosure and a tour of the new PRI collaboration platform which will present outcomes from the last 2 years of PRI-led collaborative engagements with companies on issues such as human rights, trends and tools.
