About the event

The Model Mandate was first published by ICGN in 2012 and has been updated in partnership with the UN supported Global Investors for Sustainable Development Alliance. The Mandate offers guidance on how to incorporate the UN Sustainable Development Goals into investor stewardship activities.  It provides asset owners with example contractual terms to consider when agreeing mandates with asset managers in their efforts to preserve and enhance long-term value.
