Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)
AMP Capital a signatory to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) initiative
AMP Capital is active in many finance industry initiatives to improve governance standards and encourage responsible investment.
In 2007 we reinforced our commitment to incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into our investment decisions by signing up to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). These principles aim to provide an internationally agreed framework to help institutional investors incorporate ESG issues into investment decision making and ownership practices.
The signing of the PRI strengthens this commitment and provides an externally recognised benchmark that we can report against and recognises that applying the principles should lead to better long term financial returns and closer alignment between our objectives and those of society at large.
The PRI are voluntary and aspirational. They include the following:
Incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
Being active owners and incorporating ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
Seeking appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
Promoting acceptance and implementation of the principles within the investment industry.
Working together with other signatories to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the principles.
Reporting on our activities and progress towards implementing the principles.
