Principals of Responsible Investment

To enable the Fund to be more Global in its engagement in August 2010 the Fund signed up to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) which is now known as PRI. Over 1600 companies from all over the world have signed up to the Principles.

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 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.

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 supported by, but not part of, the United Nations.

Annually the Fund completes a PRI questionnaire the outcomes of which can be found in the 2020 PRI Assessment Report.
