Supporting the PRI, collaborating on projects and helping us grow our network goes hand in hand with benefits for our partners. We are always reaching out to signatories and other potential partners to join forces with us to promote responsible investment through events, publications and projects.
By partnering with the PRI, an organisation can showcase its commitment to the responsible investment sector and demonstrate its credentials.
For any information regarding sponsorship opportunities, and to present your ideas to collaborate or partner with PRI, please contact Peter Boonman, Head of Partnerships.
Current opportunities for partnering with the PRI:
Hosting an event for PRI
Hosting an event is an excellent way to support the PRI. Each year we organise a number of events all over the world, from small to large, in which existing and potential signatories engage with each other and the PRI Secretariat. If you would like to host an event for PRI please contact us to register your interest.
PRI in Person
PRI in Person is the opportunity of the year for all PRI signatories and potential signatories to meet, collaborate and learn from their peers.
In 2014, the conference will take place over three days and be packed with innovative roundtables, thought-provoking sessions, peer-to-peer dialogue and plenty of time to network. PRI signatories, industry experts and thought leaders will lead engaging panels and debates. Delegates representing all sectors of the long term investment industry will be present. Each year PRI in Person is held in a new location, and after Sydney, San Francisco, Paris, Rio de Janeiro and Cape Town, PRI in Person will be held in Montreal from 24 – 26 September 2014. A new tradition is the welcome reception before the start of the conference. Delegates are sure to leave the conference with a new perspective, list of action items and a new network of friends and business contacts.
Each year we have a range of partnership opportunities for sponsors. Companies can become conference sponsors, or partner with PRI on a specific event, or side event or product within the conference.
Conference partnering opportunities include:
- Conference sponsors at Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver or Supporter level
- Co-sponsorship of the welcome reception (maximum four sponsors)
- Conference mobile app with advertising (splash screen and banner) for sponsor
- Eco-friendly co-branded (sponsor and PRI in Person) satchels/bags

PRI Academic Network
The PRI Academic Network organises a yearly conference, symposium and workshops.
In 2013 the Academic Network Conference will be held in Paris on 13-15 November, hosted by the Groupe Caisse des Dépôts. A Student Symposium is taking place on the first day, dedicated to the latest research by Ph.D. students with 20-25 presentations. The overall theme for the conference is Investing for Sustainable and Long-Term Returns and the evening programme includes the presentation of the FIR and Sustainalytics awards.
As an international event, this is a unique opportunity for academics, students and investment professionals to hear the latest findings, communicate priorities for future research and to network with each other. Sponsorship options are available with attractive benefits for sponsors – contact us to register your interest.
On 20 November the PRI Academic Network is organising the PRI Asia-Pacific Responsible Investment Research Forum, in collaboration with and hosted by the National University of Singapore. A few sponsorship options are still available with attractive benefits for sponsors – contact us to register your interest.
In 2014 the Academic Network will launch its first Research Insights publication, during a series of international road shows. These are aimed at asset managers and will bring the latest academic research in an accessible format to practitioners. PRI is looking for organisations that are willing to host and/or sponsor the road shows, either as a whole or in one of the global financial centres.
PRI Regional Networks
PRI Network Managers are active regionally to coordinate engagements and activities and support signatories. One of the activities they are coordinating and that we are seeking sponsors for is translation of the Reporting Framework into various languages, depending on local/regional demand. The translated documents offer branding benefits for sponsors; please contact us if your organisation would be interested in this opportunity.
