Principles of Responsible Investment

To enable the Fund to be more global in its engagements, we signed up to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in August 2010. To date, over 5,000 organisations from all over the world, representing $121 trillion of assets under management, 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. Our commitment to responsible investment can be found in our 2023 Summary Scorecard. We are really pleased with our summary results in all areas, scoring well above the PRI median in our categories. The outcomes of the questionnaire can be found in the 2023 PRI Transparency Report.

Our main work stream with the PRI currently is:

  • Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) - we are members of a group of 50 PRI signatories representing US$ 7.6 trillion in assets under management which is engaging with stock exchanges globally to ask that they enhance the sustainability performance of their listed companies, with particular emphasis on ESG disclosure.
