Title

Sustainable Investing Thought Leadership Group Virtual Meeting: A Conversation with the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) on Policy & Signatory Trends

Event Description

This month we'll feature a discussion with two key members of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), an increasingly powerful organization in sustainable and impact investing, now counting over 3,200 asset owners and asset managers representing more than $100 trillion in AUM. Our wide-ranging conversation will touch on key adoption trends on a global basis and ways by which PRI is leveraging the weight of its signatories to engage with important policy organizations, including the SEC and DOL.  

To lead this discussion, we're happy to welcome Greg Hershman, Senior Specialist for U.S. Policy, PRI. Prior to PRI, Greg spent six years in the U.S. Senate in various roles including working for Senator Tom Carper (Del.), and on the Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee and the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee. Greg received his MBA from Carnegie Mellon University focusing on renewable energy and sustainability and received his BA from Franklin & Marshall College. He is a native of Southeastern PA/Delaware.

We are also happy to welcome Carly Greenberg, Relationship Manager for the United States, PRI. Prior to joining PRI, Cary was the first professional hired by The Hershey Company, a Fortune 500 firm, to focus on environmental sustainability and established the company's environmental sustainability programs in line with the best available climate science and data. Before Hershey, Carly spent a decade in the ESG investment management field as the Manager of ESG Investing at Boston Trust Walden Company, a pioneer in ESG investing and shareholder engagement.

This session will be moderated by Mark Hays, the Director of Sustainable & Impact Investing at Glenmede and one of the CFAP's committee members.  Following a presentation by Carly, Greg, and Mark will engage in a wide-ranging discussion and open up for Q&A from attendees.
