Launching the ESG & Impact Investment Forum

Maala International Conference 2018 | Tel Aviv, Israel

The ESG investment track in the 2018 conference was held as a sort of mini-conference within the Maala conference, and consisted of three parts. The session brought together several viewpoints on ESG investment, with speakers from major institutional investors, ESG rating companies, the responsible investment community, and guidelines for reporting on ESG performance.

The designated ESG track also marked the launch of the sustainable investment forum in Israel, inviting investors and businesses minded to ESG to join the responsible investment community. The forum will offer learning, networking and further opportunities with the aim of increasing the cap of sustainable investing in Israel.
