Salt East Midlands Workshop: Good Investment

Event details

address:

Geldards LLP, Number One Pride Place, Pride Park, Derby, DE24 8QR, United Kingdom

date:

At this workshop we will be looking at the topic of ‘good investment’ and how we can achieve a more sustainable financial system. Discussions will include: how you choose a bank or building society for your cash reserves that promotes financial inclusion how to make your pensions provider or asset managers more ethical or fossil-fuel free by investing pooled or treasury funds of the company.  how to navigate the landscape of ‘impact investing’, where you explicitly aim to invest in projects and companies that have a clearly identified social or environmental outcome. Attendees will be inspired and supported to think about how they can put values to work by leading change in their own business, provoking a community of change across faith and business networks and resourcing change by supporting entrepreneurs in the global south.  Workshops are free to attend but attendees are encouraged to make a donation towards Christian Aid's work. Christian Aid is working to eradicate poverty around the world, and is coming up with some innovative ways to do just that. We are inviting business leaders to work with us, and with each other, to tackle global poverty. The new Salt Business Network is open to anyone who owns a business, or is in a senior management position within a commercial organisation. It is for leaders who want to join a movement of like-minded people, who will learn about putting in place more responsible business practices, and about sustainable development, through the lens of faith. To find out more, please see caid.org.uk/salt or email salt@christian-aid.org Attendees are invited to join us for a meal (at member’s expense) following the event.
