PRI releases 2013-14 Report on Progress
Mitigating risk is still a key motivator for incorporating responsible investment, but other drivers, including a broader interpretation of fiduciary duty, reputational and competitive advantages are emerging according to this year’s Report on Progress, released by the PRI.
This report is the result of the analysis of the largest ever global data gathering exercise on responsible investment. It shows that, while much progress has been made in raising the broad awareness of the issues and that most investors now acknowledge the need to incorporate these factors into investment processes, more work remains to be done to measure the financial and ESG impact of their early efforts to do so. Asset owners are key to achieving this goal, but need to hold more robust dialogues with their managers and to ensure that their mandates are being effectively executed.
