Social issues

The PRI supports investors’ efforts to address social issues - such as human rights, working conditions and modern slavery - with companies in their portfolio.

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.


PRI Collaboration Platform

The Collaboration Platform is a unique forum that allows investors to pool resources, share information and enhance their influence on ESG issues. It is also a hub for academics and investors to connect and engage with research.
