The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative is an international network of investors working together to put the six principles for responsible investment into practice. Its goal is to understand the implications of Environmental, Social and Governance issues (ESG) for investors and support signatories to incorporate these issues into their investment decision making and ownership practices. In implementing the principles, signatories contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system.
The PRI network of international signatories works together to implement a set of voluntary and aspirational principles that provide a framework for integrating ESG factors into investment analysis and ownership practices. These factors are aligned with investors’ goals and values and tailored to each organization’s investment strategy, approach and resources.
