As announced in Sept 2021, the CEU Executive Board unanimously adopted a Statement of Intent to investigate the development of a CEU Reconciliation and Responsible Investment Initiative (RRII) Fund.
In the last 5 months, the CEU Investment Committee members explored this initiative through various meetings with: our banking institution (Vancity); our Fund Managers – Vancity Investment Management (VCIM); and Shareholder Association for Research & Education (SHARE).
With the help of a consultant who has worked with similar impact investment initiatives on Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), the CEU Investment Committee unanimously endorsed a draft RRII Investment Fund Policy.
On February 11, 2022, the CEU Executive Board accepted the endorsement and adopted it as a formal RRII policy.
With this RRII policy now in effect, the framework has been laid out on implementing this fund. We are proceeding with (a) Due Diligence and (b) Risk-Financial Return-Impact assessments on the available investment options.
The resulting assessments will be presented to the Investment Committee for their recommendation to the Executive Board.
