The PRI Latin America network currently has signatories in Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Chile, Uruguay and Mexico, which demonstrates that the region is moving towards a more sustainable economy and responsible investment is part of the agenda. 

The network remains most mature in Brazil, where long-standing relationships with industry associations continue to thrive, with ABVCAP, ABRAPP and APIMEC as networks supporters. One example is the annual “ESG Latam Conference” held in São Paulo, together with APIMEC. 

In Latin America, with the support from signatories, stock exchanges, industry associations and network supporters, like Programa de Inversión Responsable (PIR) in Peru, our goal is to use the successful experience in Brazil to expand and improve responsible investment in the region.
