We are excited to share the details of our next public event (attached) as part of the Killam Connection course, which will be held next Wednesday, March 1st, from 1-2:30pm at UBC Robson Square (Room C150/180) & Zoom. This lecture is on the topic of “The Role of Investors/International Institutions, and the Importance of ESG Factors in Mining Finance”. We will explore the need for private investment companies and international financial institutions, like the IFC, to incorporate Environmental, Social, and Governance factors into investment decisions.
The three panelists are below. Each speaker will give a short 10-15 minute presentation, which will be followed by a panel discussion that I will be moderating.
- Arjun Bhalla (IFC – International Finance Corporation)
- Christie Stephenson, ICD.D (UBC Sauder School of Business)
- Monika Freyman, CFA (Addenda Capital inc.)
