Showcasing leadership

As part of the Blueprint for responsible investment, the PRI has committed to showcasing leadership and increasing accountability, with a view to raising standards of responsible investment amongst all our signatories.

PRI - Showcasing Leadership

In 2019, we showcased leadership for the first time, putting the spotlight on good practice to educate, inspire and ultimately raise standards across the whole signatory base.

The PRI Awards entry period has now closed. Shortlists will be announced in late July 2020. If you submitted an entry, you will be contacted prior to this announcement to confirm whether your project has been shortlisted.

Frequently asked questions

What is the purpose of the PRI Awards?

As well as looking at the overall performance of signatories, we want to highlight specific examples of best practice from exceptional projects in specific categories, and to recognise activities that are not captured in the Reporting Framework.

The PRI Awards will recognise these pieces of work, and share their stories to educate and inspire other signatories.

How are the PRI Awards judged?

A panel of independent judges will score each entry against a range of publicly available, category-specific, weighted criteria. The 2020 judges are:
