NEO Opens in Recognition of Responsible Investment Week
Toronto – October 22, 2018 – The Responsible Investment Association (RIA), including CEO, Dustyn Lanz and RIA Board Chair Ian Roberston, joined Joacim Wiklander, Chief Business Officer, NEO, to open the NEO Exchange in celebration of the beginning of Responsible Investment (RI) Week, which runs October 22 to 26, 2018. RI week is dedicated to education and awareness about responsible investment, designed to help investors learn more about environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues that affect investments.
“We’re thrilled to kick off Responsible Investment Week in partnership with NEO Exchange,” said Dustyn Lanz, CEO of the Responsible Investment Association. “Environmental, social and governance issues are some of the biggest drivers of change in the global economy today. That’s why it’s so important for investors to be aware of these issues. Responsible investing can help to identify risks and opportunities that don’t show up in the financial statements.”
“As the only Canadian stock exchange to partner with RIA, NEO understands the role exchanges play in fostering greater awareness around ESG across the whole investment spectrum, and how important these issues are for Canadian capital markets,” added Joacim Wiklander, Chief Business Officer, NEO.
