LGS shines in UNPRI Assessment Report

20 August 2020

World’s leading independent responsible investment body assigns 11 A+ results and one A achievement.

The United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) has assigned LGS top marks (A+) in 11 categories and one A achievement in its PRI 2020 Assessment Report. The report assesses asset owners’ implementation of responsible investments across different categories in their investment portfolio.

The report assists asset owners, such as super funds who are signatories to the UNPRI, to compare their responsible investment performance year-on-year and against other asset owners on a local and global level.    

LGS achieved the top score for every category but one, and seven of those top scores represented an improvement on last year’s results.

These scores underline the importance of a comprehensive strategy and strong governance when it comes to responsible investment, as well as the benefits of active ownership in improving environmental, social and governance practices.
