Event Description

How can we overcome challenges to long-term, sustainable investment in Europe? How can the voice of civil society be strengthened in this process, and what role does policy have to play?

These issues will be the subject of debate at ShareAction’s multi-stakeholder conference, Responsible Investment in Europe. We will also mark the launch of the European Responsible Investment Network (ERIN), ShareAction’s new civil society network. The aims of the conference are to spread best practice, build public awareness and deepen collaboration.
