This part of the PRI’s asset owner programme is currently under development. The PRI Asset Owner team is conducting guidance to help asset owners in the systematic incorporation of ESG factors. It is aimed to help asset owners defining and operationalising mandate ESG requirements prior to entering an investment manager relationship. It aims to fill the step of the investment chain following strategic asset allocation decisions and prior to the manager selection and appointment. We urge our signatories to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved and shape the outcome of this work.
