onValues participates in the launch of the first global academic network on ESG-inclusive investments
At a meeting in Maastricht on 18 September 2008, the UN Principles for Responsible Investment in collaboration with the European Centre for Corporate Engagement (ECCE) launched the first global academic network dedicated to research on ESG issues in investment. Leading research institutions including Boston College, ECCE, Saint Mary’s College, Umea University, Gothenburg University and University of St. Andrews took part in the launch event. onValues and Mistra presented lessons learned from the academic programme on sustainable investments that was launched by Mistra already in 2005, and highlighted practitioners’ requirements for this type of academic research.
