The Largest and Longest Running Gathering of SRI Professionals in the U.S.

For over 30 years, The SRI Conference has been the most important annual gathering for investors, asset owners, asset managers, financial advisors, researchers, academics, mission-driven organizations, and enterprises who share the common goal of deploying private capital to address some of our most pressing environmental, social, and economic challenges.

Leading the Way Forward in SRI/ESG

When the first group of concerned investors gathered in 1990 to share ideas on directing the flow of investment capital for good, SRI occupied a dedicated, but little-known, corner of the financial community.  As the conference grew over the next 20 years, so too did assets invested according to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles, even as the greater investing community largely ignored the sector.

But by 2010, assets invested according to ESG principles had reached $3.07 trillion¹, driven in part by environmental disasters such as the BP oil spill, the rapid dissolution of once powerful companies such as Enron and MCI, and the Great Recession. Since 2010, SRI assets have continued to explode, reaching $12 trillion in 2018², a nearly four-fold increase in just 10 years – a clear sign that the revolution is here.

We’re proud of the role our community has played in bringing SRI in to the mainstream, and we invite you to join the revolution and see just how much we can accomplish working together over the next 30 years and beyond.

A Focus on Sustainability

The SRI Conference and Community’s mission is to drive ever-increasing capital to companies and organizations working for the common good, while delivering investors lasting financial, social, and environmental returns.

Through The Annual SRI Conference and our regional events, we provide a forum for year-round collaboration and communication among members of the sustainable, responsible, and impact, and environmental, social, and governance ecosystem as we work together to advance the deployment of financial resources for the greater good.

We carefully select our venues with their commitment to the environment, social responsibility, diversity, and corporate governance, and community engagement in mind.

A Commitment to Nurturing the Next Generation

The future of our industry – and the outcome of so many pressing environmental, economic, and social challenges – is vested in the next generation. Through our SRI 30 Under 30 Award, and the SRI Scholars program, we recognize and honor those young people who demonstrate the highest commitment to sustainable, responsible, and impact investing.
