Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

The PRI commissioned Trucost to calculate the cost of global environmental damage.

The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment.

It works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in integrating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.

The United Nations backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) commissioned Trucost to calculate the cost of global environmental damage and examine why this is important to the economy, capital markets, companies and institutional investors.
