The PRI is inviting its signatories to contribute directly to the strategy and execution of its infrastructure programme.

The PRI’s Investment Practices team takes an asset class-specific approach to support signatories’ implementation of the six Principles. Each programme is supported by a signatory-led advisory committee which helps the PRI create and implement strategies for: outreach and industry engagement; clarification on how ESG relates to risks and opportunities; highlighting examples of best practices; and supporting the implementation of the six Principles.

Please review the PRI Infrastructure Advisory Committee (IAC) Terms of Reference for an overview of the members’ roles and commitments. Membership is refreshed periodically, in line with PRI’s governance rules, and the PRI does its best to maintain a fair representation of the PRI infrastructure signatory base in the IAC.

  • Martin Ewald, Allianz GI
  • Takaaki Hoshino, Development Bank of Japan Asset Management
  • René Kassis, La Banque Postale Asset Management
  • Isabelle Combarel, SWEN Capital Partners
