Lindsey Walton, CFA

Director of Americas, Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

A United Nation’s supported network of investors, The PRI has over 5000 signatories worldwide – 230+ of whom are located in Canada – and who combined, have more than $120+ Trillion USD in Assets Under Management. Lindsey has leveraged this enormous platform to be a true leader in innovation – driving measurable change through advocacy and collaboration. She led her team through the creation of the Canadian Community of Practice (CoP) program, which has convened over 100 signatories to the network to date, and that template now serves as the global framework for the CoP program to be rolled out in other countries. Her work in advocacy also led to the creation of Climate Engagement Canada (CEC) – a joint effort founded by the PRI, SHARE, RIA Canada and Ceres, to engage the top reporting or estimated emitters on the TSX for the alignment of expectations on climate risk governance, disclosure, and the transition to a low-carbon economy in Canada.
