Principles for Responsible Investment
OPTrust is a signatory to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The PRI is an international network of more than 1,200 investment organizations working together to put the PRI’s six Principles of Responsible Investment into practice.
We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
These principles provide a framework for implementing a responsible investment strategy that is adaptable to the unique structure of each investor.
Along with OPTrust’s responsible investment policy (the SRIP), and other related internal policies, the PRI Principles form the foundation for OPTrust’s RI strategy.
