10 Year Global Workshop Series - Hong Kong

Thank you to everyone who attended, we had some great discussions on the day. 

The PRI's Asia network team held their first event in Hong Kong in late May, with over 50 attendees joining for the afternoon. Jessica Robinson led the first session introducing the PRI's Blueprint consultation, before moderating a panel discussion on the future of responsible investment in Asia involving Rob Barker (Head of CSR and Sustainable Investment Solutions, BNP Paribas), Benedicte Nolens (Senior Director, Head of Risk and Strategy, Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission) and Veronique Lafon-Vinais (Associate Professor of Business Education, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology). 

The afternoon continued with an introduction to the PRI's upcoming Integrated Analysis publication before Hannah Routh (Director, Sustainability and Climate Change, PwC) moderated a final session highlighting selected case studies on ESG integration submitted from investors based in Asia for the upcoming publication, presented by Emily Chew (Vice President, ESG Research, MSCI) and Ronnie Lim (Senior Investment Specialist, Robeco Hong Kong).

We would like to thank our speakers for their contribution to what was a very successful afternoon, and all of those in attendance for joining us for this event.
