Case studies: Responsible investment in venture capital

Venture capital is a vital and hugely influential part of the financial ecosystem and a significant engine for job creation and innovation.

As our paper, Starting Up: Responsible Investment in Venture Capital, noted, there is a lack of formal, standardised responsible investment practices across the industry, although interest is growing and collaborative work between venture capital firms is underway.

To support this, the PRI has worked with investment manager and asset owner signatories to develop a case study series on ESG incorporation and investing for sustainability outcomes in venture capital. The series addresses themes ranging from DEI to climate change.
