Description

We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming convening entitled ‘Investor Spotlight: Principles for Investment in Sustainable Fisheries’, taking place in Paris on 31st October 2018 from 14:00-15:30 and coinciding with the Global Impact Investing Network’s Investor Forum.

Our objective is to discuss how investors can play a role in advancing the sustainability of our oceans. Although overfishing is a well-known global problem, it is not as commonly understood how investments made in the food sector can carry environmental and social risks - and inadvertently impact the health of the ocean. Given the growing appetite for aligning investments with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we would like to demonstrate how investors can advance their environmental and social objectives by adopting the Principles for Investment in Sustainable Fisheries.

The event will be led by Environmental Defense Fund and Meloy Fund, in collaboration with The Economist Group’s newly formed World Ocean Initiative. The event is supported by Althelia Ecosphere, Encourage Capital and Calvert Impact Capital.

Agenda for the event:

  • Introduction and context

  • The business case for sustainable fisheries

  • Testimonials from existing Adopters and Endorsers

  • Q&A

  • Next steps

Register your attendance

We would be delighted if you joined us in Paris, and considered adopting the aforementioned Principles. We would be grateful for your RSVP by 5th October.

If you have any questions about the event please feel free to reach out to Tim Fitzgerald by emailing tfitzgerald@edf.org.

We very much hope to see you in Paris.

Best regards,
