The PRI Digital Forum provides a platform for discussion and debate with sustainable finance experts from around the world. Through a series of webinars, each forum focuses on a particular theme, enabling in-depth conversation and reflection on the most important issues facing responsible investors.

In March 2024, Moving from Principles to Practice returns to support signatories putting responsible investment principles into practice. Forum topics will include writing a responsible investment policy, screening, global responsible investment trends, ESG incorporation in multi-asset portfolios and strengthening asset owner-investment manager relationships.

We would like to thank our Digital Forum Sponsor: BB Asset Management
