UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI)
The UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) are voluntary guidelines established by the United Nations to encourage institutional investors such as pension funds, asset managers, and financial organisations to adopt responsible investment practices. These guidelines provide a framework for incorporating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into investment decision-making and ownership practices. The aim is to generate sustainable long-term returns while contributing to positive environmental, social, and governance outcomes. The PRI consists of six principles that signatories commit to. These are: incorporating ESG factors into investment analysis and decision-making processes, being active owners and incorporating ESG factors into ownership policies and practices, seeking appropriate disclosure of ESG information by the entities in which they invest, promoting the adoption and implementation of the PRI within the investment industry, and working together to enhance the effectiveness of the implementation of the principles.
