Event Details

Building Green Pathways to Wealth ™

Mission-related responsible investing can provide foundations, endowments, and non-profits with investment strategies that leverage their assets more fully for their core philanthropic purpose while managing risk and creating lasting value in their portfolios.  Moreover, such strategies are compatible with fiduciary responsibilities of nonprofit trustees and are increasingly being acknowledged as an element of prudent trusteeship, especially for the long-term investor.

This webinar will provide investment trustees insight on how to leverage their portfolio assets to maximize the impact of their core philanthropic mission, and position said assets to best meet investment objectives.

You will learn how to:

  • Assess the key environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues that companies face today
  • Use responsible investing strategies to enhance mission without compromising fundamental fiduciary duties.
  • Implement an investment policy statement that aligns with your organization’s mission
  • Lower risk and increase opportunity by evaluating environmental impact of portfolio holdings

Who should attend:
Nonprofit executives, board members, investment fiduciaries, finance managers, human resources professionals, business owners, and business management consultants.
