The University of Toronto Responsible Investing Committee (RIC) acts as an independent policy adviser to the Chief Financial Officer of UofT regarding principles of responsible investment, to be considered by the administration and the University of Toronto Asset Management Corporation (UTAM).
The Committee has eight members, including students, alumni, teaching staff and non-teaching staff of the University. The Chief Financial Officer of UofT and Chief Compliance Officer of UTAM are ex-officio members. The Terms of Reference require RIC to meet at least once each semester.
The Priorities of the Committee for 2015 – 16 include:
- defining Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues for the purposes of Responsible Investing;
- reviewing the draft principles of Responsible Investing drafted by UTAM;
- reviewing the mandates of the current Subcommittees.
