RI New York 2019: SDGs and impact investing
On Wednesday 4 December 2019, Bowen Gu, Investor Engagement Manager at the Access to Medicine Foundation will join a panel discussion at RI New York on the SDGs and impact investing.
The panel will look at how the SDGs are creating change and value through the business and institutional investment chain, what the investment benchmarking of companies against SDG progress looks like, why do it, as well as how asset owners and society at large interpret successful SDG investment.
Bowen will discuss the latest and upcoming research at the Access to Medicine Foundation, and how investors have been using the Access to Medicine Index and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Benchmark, in their impact investing strategies, as well as engagement and stewardship activities.
