About the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

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 and 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, as well as the financial markets and economies in which they operate, for the benefit of the environment and society as a whole.

The PRI is truly independent. It encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks, but does not operate for its own profit. It engages with global policymakers, but is not associated with any government. It is also supported by, but not part of, the United Nations. Visit the PRI website for more details.
