Does the institution have a formally established and active committee on investor responsibility (CIR) or similar body that has multi-stakeholder representation (i.e. includes faculty, staff, and students) and otherwise meets the criteria for this credit?:

Joint Sustainable Investment Advisory Committee (JSIAC)

Establishing the JSIAC provides a structure for fostering dialogue on investment decisions in order to advance discussions that promote sustainability.

In particular, the JSIAC will explore and exchange on the sustainable investment practices of both the CUF and funds held and managed by the student associations.

Members of the CIR, including affiliations and role (e.g. student, faculty, alumni):

The JSIAC includes representatives from the Concordia Student Union (CSU), the Graduate Students Association (GSA), Divest Concordia, the Concordia University Foundation (CUF) and two faculty members with expertise in the area of sustainable investing.
