Social issues

The PRI supports investors’ efforts to address social issues with companies in their portfolios – including decent work and diversity equity and inclusion. Our work is based on recognised international human rights standards.

To hear more about our social issues work, please contact Remi Fernandez and Yanni Aissaoui-Helcke.

Human rights

Just as for all businesses, institutional investors have a responsibility to respect human rights. This responsibility was formalised by the UN and the OECD in 2011, and since then expectations – from employees, beneficiaries, clients, governments and wider society – have only increased. Expectations have been driven not only by growing visibility and urgency around many human rights issues, but also by a better understanding of investors’ role in shaping real-world outcomes, and of their responsibility to do so – across all their investment activities.



Advance is a PRI-led collaborative initiative where institutional investors seek to advance human rights and positive outcomes for people through investor stewardship
