The PRI Collaboration Platform is a unique forum that allows investors to collaborate, pool resources, share information and enhance their influence on ESG issues.

Collaborations on the platform are online spaces that allow investors to work together on ESG issues. Collaborations can include: invitations to sign joint letters to companies or join investor-company engagements; proposals for research; calls to foster dialogue with policymakers; or requests for support on upcoming resolutions and votes.

Resolution Database

The Resolution Database is a public and global database of ESG-related shareholder resolutions, management proposals, director votes and voting outcomes. It is hosted on (and accessed via) the Collaboration Platform.

The database provides transparency over upcoming votes and investor actions. The database:

  • Supports investors to look ahead and plan for upcoming votes
  • Enables investors to follow companies and receive alerts when resolutions are added
  • Facilitates pre-declaration of voting intentions
  • Promotes dialogue and accountability with companies.

Staying in the loop

To receive all of the latest collaboration opportunities, signatories can sign up to receive the Collaboration Alert, a weekly newsletter that highlights new and ongoing collaborations. You must first sign up to the Collaboration Platform to receive this.

To keep up to date on upcoming ESG resolutions, votes and vote results, signatories can sign up to receive the Resolution Alert, a weekly newsletter sent throughout proxy season.

You can find out more about the Collaboration Platform and Resolution Database by attending one of our drop-in sessions.
