Small and resource-constrained signatories

Approximately one third of signatories have less than US$2bn of assets under management, which brings challenges when they agree to sign up to the PRI. The PRI has a specific work stream dedicated to developing very practical implementation support tools for signatories who may be resource-constrained.

About the work stream

The work stream has recently published a tool for asset owners to provide guidance on how to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations in manager selection, agreements and monitoring. It has also produced guidance on how to write a responsible investment policy and how to communicate the business case for responsible investment.

Get involved

In addition to joining the work stream, signatories can also get involved in the mentoring programme, which facilitates shared learning about how to integrate ESG issues.
