General Treasurer Seth Magaziner to Give Closing Keynote Address at United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing Event
BOSTON, MA - General Treasurer Seth Magaziner will deliver the closing Keynote remarks at a Principles for Responsible Investment conference on Fixed Income tonight at 5:15 pm and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Treasurer Magaziner's Remarks will focus on the challenges and opportunities of the surrounding Environmental, and Social Governance (ESG) movements and public investing, as well as his work as Treasurer of the State of Rhode Island to push the state's struggling economy forward.
"It is a pleasure to be joined by thought leaders and industry champions who are paving the way to a socially, economically, financially sustainable future by measuring and managing their impacts on society," said General Treasurer Magaziner in his remarks. "A wide range of issues that, a generation ago, were considered "non-financial" – such as climate change, human rights and water scarcity - are now coming to the forefront as ESG factors that can have a significant impact on investment value. Global challenges and threats of this magnitude are too large and complex for any one sector to solve alone. Collaboration will be critical as we continue to push for sustainable markets, economies and communities, with groups like PRI leading the way."
