Pension Investments and ESG: Where to Start with the New Ontario Disclosure Requirements
April 8, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Is your fund ready for the new Ontario pension reporting requirements? Does your SIPP currently acknowledge consideration of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues? Are you clear on what steps your plan can take to prepare for this new reporting requirement? Join a free webinar featuring Canadian experts in pension governance, investment and ESG analysis speaking about the steps that Ontario pension funds can take to incorporate ESG factors into their investment decision-making processes and plan documents.
Our panel will be available to answer your questions about the new Ontario Pension Benefits Act ESG disclosure regulations, including:
- How other Ontario plans have developed policies that meet the Act’s standards,
- How to start the discussion about ESG at your governing board, and
- Where to get resources to understand, develop and implement responsible investment policies.
