Thank you for your patience.

Supported by experts from the investment industry, governmental organizations, civil society and academia, the Investor Group formulated the following principles:

  1. To incorporate environmental, social, and governance issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes;
  2. To incorporate environmental, social, and governance issues into policies and practices;
  3. To seek appropriate disclosure on environmental, social, and governance issues by investees;
  4. To promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry;
  5. To enhance effectiveness in implementing the Principles; and
  6. To report on activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.

Although the Principles are voluntary and aspirational, being a signatory represents a commitment from senior managers across investment institutions to support the Principles. Applying the Principles leads to better long-term financial returns and also to a closer alignment between the objectives of institutional investors and those of society at large. Originally the Principles focused on the core values of large investors with generally long investment horizons and highly diversified portfolios. However, the Principles apply to all types of institutional investors, investment managers, and professional service partners. In 2010, there were over 750 signatories to the PRI.
