Principles for Responsible Investment
Environmental social and governance (ESG).
The PRI is established to be the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment.
It is supported by, but not part of, the United Nations.
From the Principles for Responsible Investment website:
- "The six Principles for Responsible Investment are a voluntary and aspirational set of investment principles that offer a menu of possible actions for incorporating ESG issues into investment practice.
- In implementing them, signatories contribute to developing a more sustainable global financial system. They have attracted a global signatory base representing a majority of the world’s professionally managed investments."
- Signatories commit themselves to:
- Incorporate ESG issues into their investment analysis and decision-making processes.
- Be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into their ownership policies and practices.
- Seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which they invest.
- Promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
- Work together to enhance their effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
- Report on their activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
