The SRI Conference offers attendees many opportunities to meet and learn from passionate, creative people from the responsible investment community in the United States and around the world. CSE is proud to offer our training to this community. Course topics include the principles of nature and business, the triple bottom-line approach to sustainability, incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) for 2030, new sustainability trends and regulations, calculating SROI, stakeholder engagement, cause-related marketing, sustainability ratings (DJSI, CSRHub, ET Research Index), materiality, external assurance, case studies and simulation exercises.
The CSE training at the SRI Conference provides an opportunity to network with hundreds of financial professionals and industry practitioners representing client-facing licensed investment professionals; SRI mutual fund companies, asset managers, social research organizations, and other product/service providers; and investors including nonprofit organizations, community development banks, credit unions, faith based organizations, and other groups working on social change initiatives. According to the 2016 Report on U.S. Sustainable, Responsible, and Impact Investing Trends from US SIF, $8.72 trillion is under professional management — nearly one in every five dollars of AUM in the U.S.
CSE is offering a discount to conference participants, and registrants have the opportunity to use the conference hotel rates at the Hotel del Coronado. In the collaborative environment of the CSE training and The SRI Conference, investors, managers, corporate leaders and entrepreneurs can learn and engage, building knowledge, community and prosperity.
