Shortlisted asset owners and managers for RI Reporting Awards 2018 announced

The RI Europe conference returns to London on the 5th & 6th of June 2018,

The shortlists for the RI Reporting Awards 2018 are published today in advance of the RI Awards Dinner where the winners and runners up will be announced to be held on the evening of Tuesday June 5 at the end of day 1 of the RI Europe 2018 conference. Fergal Keane, OBE, the Africa Editor at the BBC and a hugely respected journalist and author, will be the guest speaker and awards presenter at the gala dinner. Keane, who was given an OBE for services to journalism in 1997, has won numerous awards for his reporting, notably from some of the biggest humanitarian crises in Africa. The RI Reporting Awards were established in 2013 to encourage and recognise best practice and transparency in responsible investment reporting by asset owners and asset managers. They are based on proprietary research of more than 2,500 asset owner and asset manager reports around the world. Using publicly available information, Responsible Investor and our research partner, Responsible Finance Research (RFR), look for reporting best practice in terms of simplicity, relevance, disclosure and process, applying a series of pre-determined objective indicators to create pools of RI reports which are short-listed for consideration by an expert panel of Awards Judges.
Tony Hay, Publisher of Responsible Investor, said: “What gets measured, gets managed. But what gets reported, gets refined, read, appraised and then strategically developed across an industry. And we believe that the leaders should be recognised!”
