Founded at the New York Stock Exchange in April 2006, the Principles for Responsible Investment have since attracted over 1,500 signatories managing more than US$60 trillion, and in April this year, we returned to New York 10 years on to reflect on the progress that responsible investment has made.
As well as celebrating the past decade, we are taking this opportunity to look ahead to the next 10 years, for the PRI and for responsible investment as a whole. Our New York event was one of a series of initiatives throughout 2016 to review the PRI’s progress in bringing responsible investing into the mainstream, and shape the future direction of the industry and the organisation.
This includes global signatory and stakeholder surveys, publishing an independent evaluation of the PRI’s impact and hosting two major consultations on signatory accountability and on systemic sustainability challenges and potential revisions to the six Principles.
In addition to anniversary conferences in New York (14 April), London (21 June) and PRI in Person in Singapore (6-8 September), the PRI is hosting more than 20 regional workshops, roundtables and webinars to gather feedback. See more on the events that lie ahead on the PRI Events page as they are confirmed. Read more about the formal consultations here.
Findings from these events and consultations will form part of the PRI's Blueprint for Responsible Investment, which will be published in early 2017 and outline an ambitious agenda for action by the PRI and the wider responsible investment community for the coming decade.
