RI Europe, the continent’s leading sustainable business and finance conference is back in 2018 on 5th-6th June at London’s best conference venue directly opposite the iconic Houses of Parliament: etc.venues County Hall.
And this year, we are stepping up another gear in terms of the quality of content and speakers, the depth and rigour with which topics will be addressed, and the ‘challenge’ we are posing ourselves for the event: to address, answer and ‘problem solve’ real sustainable finance questions with a view to change and action.
This year’s 11th annual conference is the place to be for those that are serious about responsible investment and sustainable finance.
Among the speakers will be FMO's very own Emily Goodall, Manager, Development Impact and Sustainability talking about how impact can be measured and presented in a meaningful way.
FMO Investment Management will be represented by Martine van Aalst-Ebbers

The search for a relation between environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria and corporate financial performance (CFP) can be traced back to the beginning of the 1970s. Scholars and investors have published more than 2000 empirical studies and several review studies on this relation since then. This study extracts all provided primary and secondary data of previous academic review studies.
