Canadian Responsible Investment Conference Update: Michael Jantzi wins lifetime achievement award

Michael Jantzi, head of SRI research firm Jantzi-Sustainalytics, has been named the winner of the inaugural Canadian SRI Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's Canadian Responsible Investment Conference in Toronto.

Jantzi, 46, has been working in the SRI field since 1990, founded Jantzi Research, and is the co-author of “The 50 Best Ethical Stocks for Canadians.”

The other nominees were Peter Chapman, executive director of the Shareholder Association for Research and Education (SHARE), Bill Davis, a key member of the Taskforce on Churches and Corporate Responsibility, which actively campaigned against apartheid in South Africa and Moira Hutchinson, also of the Taskforce on Churches and Corporate Responsibility.

“Many have gone before me,” Jantzi said in his acceptance speech. “These issues have now gone mainstream but it's important to step back and honour those who laid the groundwork.”
