Transparent Reporting

What is the UNPRI?

The UNPRI 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.
  • Principle 1

    We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.

  • Principle 2

    We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.

  • Principle 3

    We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.

  • Principle 4

    We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.

  • Principle 5

    We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.

  • Principle 6

    We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
