Responsible Investment Agenda 2020
FEBRUARY 11, 2020
Looking forward, several key issues are expected to take centre stage in the world of responsible investment this year. Climate change is a major area of concern, and its concomitant risks will continue to dominate the discourse. Continued strong action from the finance community is expected to play an integral role in shaping a sustainable future for investment. The unsustainable nature of global plastic supply chains is also of increasing importance to investors. The near absence of a circular economy for plastics must be addressed given the broad and significant environmental and social implications of plastic waste. Beyond environmental topics, the issue of live animal export is expected to return to forefront during 2020 as a growing number of Australians are concerned with animal welfare.
