Montreal, May 3rd, 2022 – Christian Felx, Head of Responsible Investment at Desjardins Global Asset Management (DGAM), has been appointed to the PRI Corporate Reporting Reference Group. This international working group, consisting of representatives of signatories to the UN's Principles for Responsible Investment, makes recommendations on the types of data, sources and reporting frameworks needed to support the decision-making of responsible investors.
"Difficulty getting consistent, comparable data is often a major stumbling block for those who want to invest responsibly," said Christian Felx. "I'm excited to take part in this group's work as a representative of DGAM. We all benefit from coordinating our efforts to gain access to better, more useful information that will help us make better investment decisions."
Christian Felx's contribution to the PRI working group complements other DGAM efforts to advocate for best practices in ESG management and to promote the principles and advantages of a responsible financial market. DGAM presents its viewpoint in its ongoing discussions with the authorities in charge of public policy, business leaders, its partners and the responsible investment community. DGAM also plays an important role in various initiatives, such as the coalition of investors that's asks on TMX Group to make ESG reporting easier for issuers, as well as the task force to modernize Ontario's capital markets, to name just 2.
