PRORSUM BECOMES A UNPRI SIGNATORY

Zollikon, 16.01.2020

In line with our commitment to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, Prorsum has become a Signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).  

The PRIs are six principles, launched in 2006 as an initiative led by the then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, who united a group of investors and experts from intergovernmental organizations, industry and civil society, to co-create a set of principles to guide investors in developing and fostering a more sustainable global financial system.

The PRI mission:

“We believe that an economically efficient, sustainable global financial system is a necessity for long-term value creation. Such a system will reward long-term, responsible investment and benefit the environment and society as a whole. The PRI will work to achieve this sustainable global financial system by encouraging adoption of the Principles and collaboration on their implementation; by fostering good governance, integrity and accountability; and by addressing obstacles to a sustainable financial system that lie within market practices, structures and regulation.”

As Signatories, we embrace  and support the PRI mission through our work and champion the six principles.  By adopting the PRI we pledge to:

  1. Incorporate ESG issues into our investment analysis and decision-making processes.

  2. Be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.

  3. Seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.

  4. Promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.

  5. Work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.

  6. Report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.

At Prorsum, we believe in the transformative power of the investment industry. Given our own mission, adhering to the principles is a natural step, further highlightomg our dedication to positive impact through our activities.
