London and Sao Paulo, June 14, 2017 – The Granito Group has become a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), an initiative spearheaded by the United Nations through the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and the UN Global Compact.
The PRI are six principles that incorporate ESG criteria in investment processes. The signatories freely and voluntarily commit to undertaking an approach aimed at integrating and respecting these principles in their investment practices.
The PRI were initially established in 2006 by a group of institutional investors from 16 different countries with assets under management of $3 trillion. These principles aim to align the long term investing goals of institutional investors with society as a whole by applying and integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria to the investment process.
As signatories of the PRI, we are joining more than 1,700 other signatories across the globe representing US$ 62 trillion in assets under management that have pledged to incorporate ESG factors into their investment research and due diligence process.
