Principles for Responsible Investment

Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) are supported by the UN and consist of six general guidelines for investors' CSR work.

All companies engaged in investment activities can use the six principles, but companies can also opt to subscribe to PRI. Investors who are members of PRI include institutional investors, investment banks and investment advisers. Today, PRI has 1,197, of which 33 are Danish (June 2013). Investors that are signatories to PRI undertake an obligation to adhere to the six principles and to report on their work.

The principles were created in collaboration between the UN Global Compact, the UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and a number of the world's largest investment banks.

The principles are general and it is up to each investment company to decide how it will observe the principles and focus its activities. In this respect, it is an advantage to target activities at the areas subject to the greatest problems or risks.
