Sustainable investment goes to school

The Robert F Kennedy Centre for Justice and Human Rights and Columbia University’s Earth Institute will run a series of high-level courses on sustainable investment focused on environmental, social and governance approaches as well as human and labour rights this autumn.

The Compass Sustainable Investing Certificate program, designed for long-term investors, will have a solutions-driven focus showing investors how to mitigate risk and improve returns. Looking at sustainable investing across all asset classes, the course aims to correct the misperception that sustainable investment underperforms and offer ways to invest sustainably with tools other than negative screening. It will feature keynote speakers from a stellar faculty and networking sections in a participation-driven approach over two weekends.

The course takes place over six days on October 18, 19 and 20 and December 6, 7 and 8 at Columbia University, New York City. Email [email protected], call 646-553-4753 or go to
