Dear members,

On behalf of the  chairwoman of the China-Table Committee of Koninklijke IGC, Koninklijke Industrieele Groote ClubXiaojia Xu, we would like to invite you to the next Royal IGC China-Table lecture event on Monday, June 17, 2024.

Sustainable Investing is the New Killer App

* What are the drivers? 
* How has China taken a leadership role in certain fields? 
* What are the challenges facing implementation? 
* What opportunities are there? 

Over the past 25 years, the landscape of investing has evolved significantly, with Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria and Impact Investing emerging as key considerations for investors. ESG investing involves evaluating companies based on their environmental practices, social impact, and governance structures to mitigate risks and identify sustainable opportunities. This approach has gained traction as investors recognize that non-financial factors can influence long-term performance and stability. 

Impact Investing goes a step further by seeking to generate positive social and environmental impacts alongside financial returns. This strategy aligns investments with values, addressing issues such as climate change, social inequality, and corporate ethics. 

The rise of ESG and Impact Investing can be attributed to increasing awareness of global challenges, pressure from stakeholders for more responsible business practices, and evidence that sustainable investments can yield competitive returns. As a result, ESG and Impact Investing have become highly sought-after strategies, reflecting a broader shift towards more conscientious and forward-thinking investment approaches.

Mr. Robert Rubinstein is the Chairman and Founding Partner of TBLI Group Holdings B.V. with headquarters in The Netherlands and expected to set up office in October in Hong Kong too. The Company was founded in 1998 with the mission of changing the financial system so it works for all stakeholders. Mr. Rubinstein has been instrumental in building the ESG and Impact Investing Eco-System, before the word ESG and Impact even existed.

TBLI is the world’s leading ESG/Impact Investing network/authority, which has been educating, advising, and connecting investors for 25 years. TBLI has produced 40 international summits and has completed nearly 500 projects. In addition, they have influenced over 50 Trillion dollars in assets and helped direct nearly 1.3 trillion in investments. Robert Rubinstein was voted in the TOP 10 Most Read Thought Leaders in ESG by Illuminem in 2023.
