Explore PRI France and Southern Europe
The France & Southern Europe Network is an informal network of signatories from France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
The RI market in these countries is not a homogeneous whole but it has grown significantly over the last years.
The network, based in Paris, coordinates its outreach in the region with local Social Investment Forums: French SIF - Forum pour l’Investissement Responsable, Italian SIF - Forum per la Finanza Sostenibile & Spainsif - Foro de Inversión Sostenible.
PRI also supports Finance for Tomorrow, a French initiative led by the actors of the Paris Financial Center to promote sustainable finance.
France is one of our largest signatory base and one of the most developed RI markets in Europe with a legal regulatory framework which shapes a favourable context. For example, the article 173 of the France’s Energy Transition law requires asset owners and asset managers to disclose information on their management of climate-related risks and on the integration of ESG parameters in their investment policies.
