UNPRI and Beyond: The Future of ESG

Sponsored by Bracewell LLP
As you may be aware, the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) organization is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. The group acts in the long-term interests of its signatories and of the financial markets and economies in which they operate, and, ultimately, the environment and society as a whole. The UNPRI encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks while engaging with global policy makers on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) initiatives.

ESG investing represents a fundamental shift across all industries globally. These issues affect strategic and operational decisions, including responding to climate change, implementing effective health and safety policies, and promoting a corporate culture that builds trust and fosters innovation.

Get an update on the work and new initiatives being undertaken at the UNPRI. Learn how PineBridge, an industry leader in the ESG space and a signatory to the Principles, is continuously evolving its responsible investing platform.

Consider how you might incorporate UNPRI into your investments at your firm, with your clients and for your own portfolio.
