Institutional Investment and Sustainability

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2008 closed with a call by business, government and civil society leaders for a new brand of collaborative and innovative leadership to address the challenges of globalization, particularly the pressing problems of conflict, poverty, climate change and water conservation.
As in previous years, Innovest Strategic Value Advisorshosted an Executive Roundtable dinner, highlighted by a dialogue between Professor Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate and former Chief Economist for the World Bank and Larry Summers, former U.S. Treasury Secretary and former Harvard University President. The topic of the dialogue this year was New Challenges for Long-Term Investors – How institutional investors can leverage trends to generate competitive advantage, superior returns, and positive impact, with a specific focus on foundations, endowments, and sovereign funds.
People interested in hearing more about this important topic can tune in to a webinar presentation by Innovest CEO Dr. Matthew Kiernan on Thursday, 31 January 2008 at 9 AM EST titled “ Davos: The ESG Dimension.
