To mark the PRI’s 10-year anniversary in 2016, we undertook a series of initiatives to review progress so far and to create an ambitious and achievable vision for how the PRI and the wider responsible investment community should progress over the next 10 years. This included global signatory and stakeholder surveys, an independent impact evaluation and major signatory consultations.
These activities culminated in the launch of this blueprint in 2017, setting the direction of our work for the 10 years ahead.
We are committed to continuing to consult with signatories on the three-year strategies and annual work programmes that will underpin this vision. We will be disciplined, systematic and intensely focused on our Mission in deciding everything we do. We will ensure without exception that our activities bring value to signatories.
This supplement explains the genesis of the blueprint project, the assumptions we’ve based our thinking on and the process we went through to reach the agenda that A blueprint for responsible investment sets out.
Through an ambitious agenda for the next 10 years, we plan to tackle some of the most pressing ESG issues in the world today, from climate change to challenging the barriers around a more sustainable financial system.
Our Blueprint will shape the future of responsible investment for the next decade and beyond. Through nine priority areas outlined in the Blueprint, we will encourage its signatories to become more active owners, to inspire leadership, and support sustainable investment strategies, leading to prosperous and inclusive societies for future generations.
We look forward to the day when all investment will be responsible.
An independent evaluation of the PRI’s impact over its first decade made the following recommendations for the future:
