EQ is a proud signatory of the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment.
EQ recently received its 2020 assessment results from the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The PRI granted EQ an A rating, for strategy & governance and listed equity. This score is an independent recognition of EQ’s approach to sustainability investing and its Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) integrated investment process.
Each year, signatories must submit a transparency report on their investment processes. This is made publicly available and assessed by the PRI. Processes in a range of different categories are graded in a formal report which is sent back to managers in July. The assessment does not rate signatories purely at a corporate level.
The six principles, aim to provide a framework for integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into investment decision-making:
The United Nations-supported PRI initiative is an international network of investors working together to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice. Its goal is to understand the implications of sustainability for investors and support signatories in incorporating these issues into their investment decision-making and ownership practices. In implementing the principles, signatories contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system.
