The 2021 data collection and review period is over, and accepted changes requested by signatories have been implemented in the Reporting Tool. The amended 2021 Transparency Reports have been re-uploaded privately onto the Data Portal. Although we have significant internal checks in place to ensure amendments have been made accurately, signatories have until 28 March, 10 a.m. GMT to flag potential concerns with the amendments made before PRI finalises the 2021 reporting dataset.
Data Collection Process
Were signatories required to complete the review of their report in 2021?
Reviewing your report and requesting changes to address potential data errors was optional. We allowed signatories four weeks to review their reports and request changes. If signatories did not request any changes within this four-week window, their assessment will be based on the data submitted to the PRI during the 2021 reporting cycle.
When can I expect to receive my updated Transparency Report after I request my changes?
The PRI has followed up with signatories where further changes were required or if we needed clarification. The changes have been implemented, and we have now re-uploaded signatories’ amended private Transparency Reports onto the Data Portal. All signatories can view their amended 2021 private Transparency Reports in the Data Portal.
What if the changes I have requested are not correctly implemented?
We have re-uploaded signatories’ amended Transparency Reports in the Data Portal. If the changes you requested have not been correctly implemented, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org by 28 March, 10 a.m. GMT. Once you have submitted your request to email@example.com you should expect a confirmation email within two business days.
I can see my public Transparency Report in the Data Portal, can anyone see my public report?
While you can download parts of your Transparency Report that have been made ‘public’ in the Data Portal, the PRI is not launching 2021 public Transparency Reports until June 2022.
Why can I only see my Transparency Report? Where is my Assessment Report?
We are releasing the 2021 reporting outputs in stages, with Transparency Reports released first in the new Data Portal. We aim to release the public Transparency Reports (for investors and service providers) and the private Assessment Reports (only for investors) in June 2022, alongside an updated assessment methodology.
Can I receive my Assessment Reports early if I don’t make any changes?
Unfortunately, it will not be possible to receive your Assessment Report early. Signatories’ Assessment Reports will not be available in the Data Portal until signatories have had a chance to flag potential concerns with their amended reports, and the Assessment Reports generated. The PRI intends to release Assessment Reports in June 2022.
How will my assessment be affected by changes to my report?
The Assessment Reports will be based on the amended private Transparency Report. In instances where signatories did not request changes to their reports in 2021 where missing data were identified, the assessment will be based on the data submitted to the PRI during the 2021 reporting cycle, and no accommodation can be made for outstanding data errors.
Where do I find my previous reports?
Your reports from 2020 and previous years can be found in the Data Portal, under the “Legacy Reports” tab. The public versions of your previous Transparency Reports are also available here.
Will firms see a reduction in fees in 2022?
The PRI will ensure fees are maintained at their current (2021) level for the coming calendar year. This nominal maintenance of fees at their current level constitutes a reduction of fees in real terms. The PRI offers value to signatories in a number of areas beyond the reporting function, including thought leadership, tools for investors, guidance on ESG integration by asset class, thematic work and more, alongside our global events schedule. As the PRI is a membership organisation, any reduction in fees will have a direct impact on the level of service that it’s possible for the PRI to provide to signatories across these wider areas.
How will fees be calculated in 2022?
Signatory Renewal fees have previously been calculated on Reported Gross AUM. As there will be no reporting in 2022 the renewal fees will be calculated on 2021 reported Gross AUMs. The board have also agreed that going forward all renewal fees will be based on the previous years reported Gross AUM.
