Social investment group announces lifetime achievement award

The Social Investment Organization will present the first Canadian SRI Lifetime Achievement Award at this summer’s Canadian Responsible Investment Conference.

“The winner will have made an outstanding contribution to the Canadian SRI industry in terms of leadership, commitment, initiative, innovation, collaboration and/or impact in advancing industry growth and recognition,” the SIO said in a news release. “The winner will also be recognized as exemplifying high standards of professional and ethical conduct.”

Following a public nomination process, the SIO will narrow the field to four nominations based on the results of the public vote. SIO members will then be able vote online in early June and ballots will be distributed at the Toronto conference. The winner will be announced at the June 15 conference dinner.

"The award provides us with an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the leading lights in the Canadian SRI industry,"said Eugene Ellmen, executive director of the Social Investment Organization. "As well, we will build a narrative of the growth of socially responsible investing in Canada around the accomplishments and contributions of our award finalists and recipients."
