Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI)

The United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment initiative (PRI) is a network of international investors. The six key principles were drawn up in cooperation with a global community of responsible investors and reflect the view that environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues can impact investment portfolio performance and therefore merits appropriate consideration by investors. The principles provide a voluntary framework which enables investors to incorporate ESG issues into investment decision- making and ownership practices.
