Presented by

Responsible Investor

About this talk

From pioneering Clean Energy Bond programs to flexing their stewardship muscle on key social issues during the proxy season, public sector pensions are waking up to their influence in the capital markets. This unique webinar will explore the market power of public sector pension funds in accelerating the energy transition, enhancing corporate governance standards at the world’s largest corporations, and in addressing key social issues holding back economic growth - inequality and systematic under-investment in human capital development, clean energy and transport infrastructure. Join us to learn how state and municipal treasurers are responding to key ESG themes, and how public pension funds are assessing the reality of sustainable investing. Find out who is leading the way, and what lessons have been learned en route to more robust ESG integration and long-term value creation. SPEAKERS ● Tobias Read, Oregon State Treasurer ● Randy Rice, General Treasurer of the State of Rhode Island ● Millicent Budhai, Director of Corporate Governance, NYC Comptroller's Office Moderator: Paul Verney, Journalist, Responsible Investor
