STAKEHOLDER PERSPECTIVES ON NORWEGIAN INVESTMENT RESPONSIBILITY
The Strategy Council for Norway’s Government Pension Fund Global, supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Finance, hosted the Responsible Investment Conference held in Oslo on 20 June 2013. The conference’s goal was to facilitate dialogue with stakeholders on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues to inform the Strategy Council’s forthcoming report on the Fund’s responsible investment strategy. The summit was organised into three sessions, each of which focused on one ESG issue and featured speakers from Norwegian and international organisations. Overall, participants commended the Fund’s achievements to date while proposing a variety of new initiatives and highlighting the challenges faced by the Fund.
