Par Erick Jarjat le 28/03/2013 pour NEWSManagers UK


A coalition of 34 institutional investors managing approximately USD3.3trn in assets are encouraging 1900 companies, located in 44 countries, to consider joining the United Nations Global Compact as part of the “PRI for Rio” collaborative engagement.
Enhancing corporate sustainability was high on the agenda of the 193 Member States that attended the UN's Rio+20 conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 2012. Following the Rio+20 event, a group of PRI signatories launched this engagement to further support the call for an increased focus on strategic sustainability among companies globally, calling it PRI for Rio.
The investors supporting this engagement, who are all signatories to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), are based in Australia, Europe, North and South America and include BNP Paribas Investment Partners, Boston Common Asset Management, Calvert Investments, Highclere International Investors, PGGM, Scottish Widows Investment Partnership, Sparinvest Holdings SE, Threadneedle Investments, Trillium Asset Management and Walden Asset Management.
