Beijing Roundtable: Investor Obligations and Duties and ESG Integration in China


The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and The Generation Foundation invite you to an Expert Policy Roundtable on ‘Investor Obligations and Duties and ESG Integration,’ hosted by BNP Paribas. Building on the recent achievements of the national Green Finance initiative in China, this event aims to discuss the development of an investment and regulatory environment that promotes consideration of financially material environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, consistent with investor obligations and duties. 

This event is the second of two organized in China, which are part of the broader work of UNEP FI and the PRI supporting the integration of material ESG issues in investor obligations and duties. The first roundtable will bring a panel of policy and investment professionals discussing this topic in Shanghai on October 11, 2017. The ideas generated at both events will complement research on how clarifying the role of ESG integration in investor obligations and duties can contribute to achieving China’s long-term vision of balanced, inclusive and sustainable development. A summary report incorporating the main findings of the research and the roundtables feedback will be published in January 2018. 

This meeting is open to UNEP Finance Initiative and PRI signatories and non-signatories.

责任投资原则(PRI),联合国环境规划署金融倡议(UNEP FI)和世代基金会诚邀您参加由法国巴黎银行主办的关于“投资者责任和义务以及ESG整合”的政策专家圆桌会议。基于中国在国家绿色金融举措的最新成果,本活动旨在探讨投资和监管环境发展对于中国金融领域重要的环境、社会和治理(ESG)问题的推动作用,以与投资者的责任和义务相契合。本活动是在中国举办的两场中的第二场。这两场活动都是UNEP FI和PRI在推动投资者责任和义务中重要的ESG整合方面广泛工作的一部分。第一场圆桌会议将于2017年10月11日在上海邀请一个投资专家小组讨论这个话题。在这两个活动中提出的设想都将补充于研究:明确ESG整合在投资者责任和义务中的角色将如何助力实现中国长期平衡、包容和可持续发展。包含研究和圆桌反馈主要发现的总结报告将于2018年1月发布。
