“I grew up in a country that is frequently ravaged by natural disasters. Therefore, I am cognizant of its massive impact on human life and have likewise witnessed the resilience that it breeds as people find ways to live with these risks while respecting the environment. The latter, respect for the environment, is key if we are to succeed in saving our planet.”
Head of Marketing, Sun Life Global Investments
“Systematic changes need to take place in order so we can keep our planet healthy and our economies strong. We all can strive to make a difference to end hunger, reduce inequalities and take urgent action to reduce climate change.”

“We all need to work together to solve the carbon emission challenge at our corporate level and with the money we manage. As a manager of managers, we also need to engage with and influence the many fund managers we work with on their own net zero journey. I feel we can meaningfully contribute to this world-wide initiative.”
Adelina Romanelli, CFA, FSA Credential Holder,
Director, Responsible Investing, Sun Life Global Investments
“Recognizing our role in the massive, but urgent, transformation of our global landscape towards an equitable and inclusive low-carbon economy is a source of inspiration. Addressing climate change is critical to establishing some degree of stability and addressing the “just” principles is the only way towards a truly resilient ecosystem.”
Matthew Stern, CFA,
AVP, Product Development, Sun Life Global Investments
“Providing access to sustainably-driven solutions is one of the first steps towards ensuring that our investors have an opportunity to invest in causes that they can relate to all the while effecting change.”
