Responsible Investment Recognition

The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative is an international network of investors working together to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment (the Principles) into practice. The Principles aim to help integrate the consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues by institutional investors into investment decision-making and ownership practices, and thereby improve long-term returns to beneficiaries. In implementing the Principles, signatories contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system.
Lendlease’s Investment Management business was the first global specialist property investment management company to become a signatory to the United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment in November 2007.
