BCI advocates for legal and regulatory changes that make responsible investing principles part of the regulatory framework and improve the investment environment for all investors. By engaging with Canadian and international regulators and standard-setting bodies, our activities are aimed at addressing systemic risks, with the expectation that our efforts will lead to greater stability and integrity within the markets. As a long-term investor, we recognize that meaningful, large-scale change takes time.
In 2018, BCI submitted 17 policy submissions to Canadian and international regulators, and standard-setting bodies. Topics focused on advancing responsible investing within the investment industry, corporate governance, and reporting & disclosure. For a comprehensive list of our submissions for 2018 and a closer look at some of the more noteworthy submissions, please refer to the Public Equities section in our 2018 Responsible Investing Annual Report published on our website at https://www.bci.ca/approach/responsible-investing/.
