"Our real problem, then, is not our strength today; it is rather the vital necessity of action today to ensure our strength tomorrow" - D.D. Eisenhower
During the Spring Meeting, oikees will have the opportunity to dive deep into sustainable investment and topics that fall close to or within it such as corporate governance, sustainable banking or responsible investment.
The aim of the Spring Meeting is to allow participants to gain a deeper understanding of the mentioned topics by engaging in individual and group projects, consulting experts and hands on experiences. All this is expected to be enhanced by the atmosphere that the 2013 Spring Meeting aims to provide: an international and multicultural environment where networking is key to exchanging ideas.
The IISD claims that it is difficult to pin down an exact definition for sustainable investment. When one invests sustainably, they intend to plan for both the present and the future. The integration of ESG factors (Environment, Social factors and Governance) is essential, ensuring a long-term investment strategy.
