Countries, NGOs, companies and investors are all needed to help achieve the 17 SDGs and the 169 underlying targets.
The PRI will develop a programme that stimulates and helps signatories to align their responsible investment practices with the broader sustainable objectives of society, as currently best defined by the SDGs. We will provide research and education, facilitate collaboration and embed the SDGs in our work on public policy, investment practices (investment strategy, asset allocation, manager selection, incorporation in asset classes) and active ownership. Wherever possible, the PRI will do this in collaboration with UN organisations, including our UN partners: UNEP FI and UN Global Compact. A board policy committee has been installed to oversee the PRI’s SDG activities and serve as a soundboard to the executive.
Our SDG work programme is guided by an advisory committee drawn mainly from our signatory base. We have two active SDG-focused working groups; one looking at asset allocation and another at active ownership. See this page for more information on each group and to see a list of members. More details will be provided on the expected outputs of each group as they progress.
