The debate-style panel, “A view from the field: Investment and policy trends in key global markets,” will feature Lisa Woll alongside fellow members of the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA) Flavia Micilotta, Executive Director of EuroSIF, and Simon O'Connor, CEO of Responsible Investment Association Australasia. The conversation will be moderated by Simon Howard, CEO of UK SIF. Participants will share their views on sustainable investment and policy trends, including key findings from the Global Sustainable Investment Review, which was released earlier this year.
Said Lisa Woll, “I'm looking forward to attending the PRI conference to and to discuss with my global counterparts the current forces and trends impacting sustainable, responsible and impact (SRI) investing in the US, Europe and Australia. While there are certainly challenges facing the field right now, particularly from a policy standpoint, there's also incredible momentum with global SRI assets at $22.89 trillion at the start of 2016—a 25% increase since 2014.”
Woll has been the CEO of US SIF and the US SIF Foundation since 2006. She has been responsible for strategic planning, developing a robust policy and media presence, expansion and diversification of funding, launching the national conference and creating the Center for Sustainable Investment Education. US SIF has been the Secretariat of the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance several times since its founding.
