Invalda INVL together with its INVL Asset Management companies in Lithuania and Latvia, has joined the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in the middle of 2017.
The PRI, founded in 2006, is a global network of over 1700 investors, aims to assess the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. An economically efficient, sustainable global financial system is considered a necessity for long-term value creation. Investors who support the PRI voluntarily work to apply the principles in their investment activities.
Six specific responsible investment Principles are outlined by the PRI. They provide a menu of possible actions for incorporating ESG issues into investment practice – from investment analysis and decision-making to their incorporation into ownership policies and practices. Additionally, signatories to the Principles are encouraged to promote the Principles’ acceptance in the investment industry and to work together for their effective implementation.
