Sustainable Investment: Sustainability in Practice

Bonnie Foley-Wong

The Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics at UBC Sauder is pleased to host the first event of its 2022-23 ESG Investing Speaker Series on November 28, 2022 on “Sustainable Investment: Sustainability in Practice” with Bonnie Foley-Wong.

Sustainability and ESG factors are rising on the agendas of institutional investors. However, sustainable investment approaches are not one-size-fits-all given the different stages of sustainability maturity and ambition exhibited by investors.

Bonnie Foley-Wong is Sustainable Investment Leader at global investment consulting firm Mercer, and founder of Pique Ventures, an impact investment firm focused on leadership diversity and investing in early-stage impact ventures. She will share her unique perspective having operated at the entrepreneurial grassroots level and now advising large institutional asset owners including pension funds, endowments, and foundations. She'll highlight how investors are integrating sustainability into investment governance frameworks, policies, decision-making, and implementation strategies.
