To support our rapidly-growing signatory base and to ensure we have impact globally, we’ve restructured and grown our networks team.
This will ensure that our signatories continue to have the robust support they need to implement the Principles, as well as using local expertise to establish a stronger local voice in key markets.
Our teams serve PRI networks around the world from Japan to Brazil. Among other priorities, they work to ensure that signatories are fully supported in their implementation of the Principles, encourage signatories to get involved in PRI activities and address local regulatory issues.
*Members of staff on contracts of 2.5 days a week or less
To enhance relationships with signatories and help realise our ambitious recruitment targets, we restructured and grew the networks team in the following regions. In addition to this, we enhanced language capabilities in the team and translated more documents into languages other than English. This will help us penetrate markets and enable signatories to make better use of our resources.
We went from one full-time member of staff to four in this key market, where nearly a fifth of our signatories are based, boosting resources to ensure that our US signatories have the support they need.
For the first time, we have a Canada network manager on the ground who will manage signatory relationships across the country and lead the local strategy.
A physical presence in Australia means we can deepen relationships with our Australian signatory base and focus on local issues.
We introduced the Head of France and Southern Europe role to manage relationships with our robust French signatory base, and support growing ESG interest in markets such as Spain and Italy.
We strengthened resources in Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
