The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) have launched a new reporting framework that is designed to enhance the transparency of disclosures by asset owner and investment manager signatories.
Signatories will be required to publicly report each year on their implementation of the PRI’s six principles across a wider range of asset classes and investment activities, including voting and engagement; manager selection, appointment and monitoring; and the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into investment decision-making processes and ownership practices. PRI has said that they expect signatories to use the new reporting framework by mid-2014, and that signatories that do not use the new framework will be delisted in the second half of 2014.
