The PRI is funded primarily via the annual membership fee payable by all signatories.

Additional funding comes from grants from governments, foundations and international organisations. Corporate sponsorship and in-kind support is sought for standalone events and projects such as the annual PRI in Person conference and major publications. (For more information on funding that the PRI receives from partnering with other organisations, see the Partnerships section.)

The PRI receives no funding from the United Nations.

Full financial details are available in each year’s Annual Report

Fees

The annual signatory fee is payable each April and is scaled according to each signatory’s category, type and assets under management. The PRI Board approved the signatory fee levels for 2017/18 at its September 2016 meeting. It was agreed that the only increase from 2015/16 levels would be in line with UK inflation.

Discounts 

Asset owners headquartered in a country classified by the IMF as an emerging market or developing economy are entitled to apply for a fee discount. Please refer to the IMF’s World Economic Outlook 2016 (Statistical Appendix, p.209) for a full list of eligible countries.

The PRI will bill service providers based on only their investment staff, where that service provider has distinct divisions that provide distinct services. If one of those divisions provides a service that is not relevant to investors (and therefore the principles), this division will be excluded from the fee calculation.

The PRI previously offered discounts for joint UNEP FI-PRI members and reciprocal fee arrangements. These were discontinued in 2017.

For further details or to apply for a discount, please contact invoicing@unpr.org.
