PLWF Conference 2021: Opening speech by PRI’s CEO Fiona Reynolds
On October 28th, PLWF hosted its fourth annual conference. Our members, together with industry experts and brands, discussed the PLWF’s 2021 assessment outcomes, shed light on recent developments and looked ahead to what is needed to further accelerate the living wage and living income agenda in the garment, agri-food, and food retail sectors.
We were honored to have an opening speech by Fiona Reynolds, CEO of the Principles for Responsible Investment. However, technical issues prevented us from showing it during the conference. We therefore invite you to watch it below and hear Fiona’s inspirational words on the materiality of social issues and the rise of ‘S’ in ESG, changing ideas and expectations of investors’ role in shaping real world outcomes, and of course living wages and the work of the PLWF.
The PLWF wants to thank everyone who joined us live at Triodos IM’s premises in Driebergen-Rijsenburg, or online. Special gratitude goes to our guest speakers of the day: Fiona Reynolds (PRI), Rachel Cowburn-Walden (Unilever), Maurice van Beers (CNV Internationaal), Rafael Seixas (Bonsucro), Kim van der Weert (former garment factory manager) and Shirley Schijvens (Schijvens Textielfabriek) for their valued contributions!
