Eurosif works up policyJanuary 2002
The founding partners of the European Sustainable and Responsible Investment Forum are to meet this month to discuss the body’s policy on various issues.
Eurosif, which was launched in November as a network for promoting and developing socially responsible investment in Europe, will hold its first ‘partner meeting’ in Paris to work out its direction and administrative structure over the next two years.
Eurosif was set up by five European Social Investment Forums from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, with support from the European Commission (EP3, issue 6, p4).
Two items that are likely to be on the agenda at the meeting are whether Eurosif should call for a mandatory pensions disclosure regulation on SRI across Europe, and how best to further its goal of encouraging more shareholder action on SRI matters.
Eurosif will also run two ‘information interchange’ events early this year, in Paris and Frankfurt.
