On Friday, November 13, the Responsible Investing Conference and Low-Carbon Portfolio Case Competition will take place at the Yale School of Management. Last year’s competition brought together 11 teams from top MBA programs around the world, renowned faculty, and top experts in the field to tackle the technical and ethical aspects of fossil fuel divestment from university endowments. We were proud to tap into the creativity, passion, and expertise of talented MBA students and professionals, and the result was an event that delved deep into the moral and economic considerations of investing responsibly.
This year, as a result of the success of last year’s case competition, we are expanding the event into a full conference exploring a wide array of topics in the responsible investing universe. The conference will focus on educating future leaders in responsible investing and include panels on ESG Integration and the Use of Metrics and Global Trends in Clean Energy Investment.
