The RI Canada 2021 conference, held Sept. 27 to Oct. 1, will bring local and international leaders together to examine the potential for Canadian investors to respond to systemic risks such as climate change, pandemics, the rise of populist authoritarianism, economic inequality, and an accelerating energy transition away from fossil fuels. Participants will debate a wide range of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing themes that have the potential to either reinforce or damage the bottom line for long-term value investors.

This deep dive session will explore how Canada’s oceans expertise can support global sustainable investing in fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, and new technology areas. Which investors are leading the way? Is Canada’s Blue Economy Strategy changing how global asset allocators consider investing in this theme?
