Past Attendees

Sustainable Investment Forum North America is known for bringing together asset owners and institutional investors together during Climate Week NYC. This year, the Sustainable Investment Forum North America will return in person during Climate Week NYC and connect 350 qualified delegates to network and learn.

It has been a pleasure to work with Climate Action over the last number of years. These forums, we believe are one of the most important places for leading financial institutions to get together, share best practice and understand how markets are moving towards real sustainability integration.

Eric Usher, Head, UNEP FI
“The people who are attending the Forum are a wide range of both asset owners and asset managers – and when we’re looking to move the agenda forward in terms of further and more extensive sustainable investment on a global basis, these are the people who are the decision makers.“
Andrew Steel, Managing Director, Global Head of Sustainable Finance, Fitch Ratings

“We’ve been coming to [the Sustainable Investment Forum North America] for multiple years now. We think that within the North American market it’s one of the best, if not the best at bringing together of the minds, both from the asset owner and asset management perspective”

Todd Arthur Bridges, Head of ESG Research, State Street Global Advisors
