The PRI’s investment practices team runs a number of work streams designed to further responsible investment in specific asset classes.
For each work stream a signatory-led advisory committee helps the PRI create and implement strategies for: outreach and industry engagement; clarification on how ESG relates to risks and opportunities; highlighting examples of best practices; and supporting implementation of the six Principles.
Committee members are refreshed periodically based on the PRI’s governance guidelines. The PRI does its best to maintain a balance of asset owners and investment managers across a range of regions, experience levels, fund size, investment philosophies and motivations.
Participation in these committees typically involves the following commitments:
- available to start from the January immediately following application;
- minimum four 60-90 minute committee meetings per year;
- of those meetings – at least one in-person committee meeting per year;
- preparation, contributions and follow-up actions for committee meetings;
- additional involvement in work streams (e.g. voluntary contributions to sub-committees or working groups, producing case studies or research, speaking on event panels or webinars, engaging media, hosting meetings etc.).
In some instances, the PRI may allow more than one participant from the same organisation where there are time zone constraints or similar issues.
