The PRI wants to encourage an active dialogue between signatories and the Board. The Signatory General Meeting (the SGM), the annual general meeting of signatories, is an important forum for communication between the Board, Executive and signatories. The Board encourages signatory participation via webcast.

The SGM is an opportunity for the Board to report to signatories on the PRI’s strategy and its implementation; the work undertaken by the Board and its committees; forthcoming Board elections; any formal consultations or non-binding resolution results; and any other ordinary and special business. Signatories can put forward agenda items to the SGM for discussion.

SGM 2023

The PRI convenes an SGM in each calendar year in accordance with the SGM rules. To accommodate the PRI’s global signatory base, two SGMs were held via webcast on 13 September 08:00 – 09:30 & 17:00 – 18:30 BST.

Signatory Q&A

The Board encourages signatories to participate actively in all areas of PRI governance. Signatories were invited to submit questions in advance and there was also an allocated time during both SGMs for signatory questions. 620+ representatives from signatory organisations attended via online webcast. Signatories asked questions on a range of topics that were answered by the speakers and reported in the SGM minutes. Responses to questions that were not answered in the meeting are provided here (PDF).
