FIAP joined UN PRI as a new “network supporter,” for advancing the inclusion of responsible investment in investment processes

Last May 30, FIAP joined the Principles for Responsible Investment, promoted by the United Nations Organization (UN PRI), as a “network supporter” of the organization.

This means that FIAP is now an institution that broadly supports the inclusion of responsible investment in the investment processes of institutional investors.

The PRI is the leading advocate of responsible investment worldwide, working to understand the implications of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors for investment, and supporting its international network of investor signatories in the incorporation of these factors in their investment and ownership decisions. The independent PRI encourages investors to use responsible investment to improve their returns and better manage risks, without acting in its own interests. It also relates to global policy makers, without being associated with any government. It is backed by (but is not part of) the United Nations Organization.

Incorporating ESG issues in the investment process helps investors allocate capital to companies with good corporate governance, working to create sustainable economies. This is in line with the growing global understanding that fiduciary obligations require investors to consider ESG factors in their investment processes, in their procedures as active shareholders and in their commitment to public policies.
