United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment


The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. It works:

- To understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors;
- To support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.

The PRI acts in the long-term interests:

- Of its signatories;
- Of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.
