It fosters a network of scholars, practitioners, policymakers and students interested in responsible investment issues and  provides freely accessible avenues for research, education and network-building on critical responsible investment issues.

  • To develop a global platform to deliver high-quality and accessible academic research to PRI signatory organizations;
  • To establish and foster a network of scholars, practitioners, policymakers and students interested in responsible investment issues.
