A survey of responsible investor practices and opinions

Is there an integration of environmental risk in investment practices in South Africa? What are the obstacles and enablers to a further integration of environmental risks in the SA investment industry? In order to explore these questions, Dr Stephanie Giamporcaro (UCT EPRU) will present the results of a survey realized among asset management houses and institutional investors who are signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investing and/or suppliers of labelled socially responsible investment funds.
Investment professionals, media and academics are invited to the presentation.
