The Social Investment Organization has named Moira Hutchinson, Eugene Ellmen and Robert Walker as this year's recipients of the Canadian SRI Distinguished Service Award.

The awards were handed out at this year's Canadian Responsible Investment Conference in Vancouver on June 18. 
“We are so proud of these outstanding individuals who have done so much to promote socially responsible investing in Canada. Because of their contributions, Canadian investors can make investment decisions that generate competitive long-term financial returns and positive societal impact,” said Gary Hawton, President of the SIO and 2012 recipient of the award. “Moira, Eugene and Bob have helped lead the way to a brighter and more sustainable future for all Canadians.”  

Hutchinson led the Taskforce on the Churches and Corporate Responsibility (TCCR), which helped lay the foundation for the SRI industry in Canada.
Ellmen was executive director of the SIO from 1999 to 2013.
Walker is Vice-President of ESG Services for NEI Investments, and has led the team responsible for NEI’s ESG Investing Program for more than 10 years.
