Economic inequality briefing, Oslo
The widening economic inequality gap is one of the most pressing challenges we face, but what can investors do practically to address this?
Join PRI's Managing Director, Fiona Reynolds, and PRI board members for a round up of the discussions we have had so far, as well as input into the research we are commissioning on this issue.This research-led event series is in collaboration with the Initiative for Responsible Investment at the Harvard Kennedy School. A short discussion paper has been produced to help brief participants. Following the conclusion of the international roundtable series, research will be commissioned to support and guide PRI signatories to take action on how to integrate economic inequality into investment decisions.
