The PRI supports investors seeking to address a range of environmental issues with companies in their portfolios. Key topics include sustainable commodities, deforestation, biodiversity and the circular economy.
Land use change represents significant operational and climate-related risks to companies and investors looking to create long-term value. To minimise these risks, investors can engage with their investee companies about eliminating deforestation from their direct operations and supply chains.
Nature provides ecosystem services, which benefit businesses and society. The assets that underpin these services are called natural capital. Biodiversity is the variety of living components that make up natural capital. It has a role in ensuring the resilience of natural capital assets and securing them for the future.
A circular economy is a model of production and consumption that tackles global challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution.
With increasing production and use, and poor end-of-life management, there are many environmental and economic risks associated with plastics. There are also legal requirements companies must increasingly respond to. Finding solutions to these issues through new technologies, innovations and investments can create opportunities for investors.
Water is a finite and shared resource. As well as being a basic human right and fundamental to healthy ecosystems, water is vital to the functioning of the global economy.
The production of oil and gas via hydraulic fracturing (fracking) remains important and yet can be viewed as a contentious method in some regions, with community controversies, bans and moratoria in different areas.
Methane, the primary component of natural gas, is a climate pollutant 84 times more powerful than carbon dioxide (CO2) over a 20-year period, and it is responsible for 25% of the global warming we are experiencing today.
