Boston Trust Walden Publishes Annual ESG Impact Report


Principles For Responsible Investment: Our Commitment

In 2006, the UN Secretary-General convened an international group of investors committed to integrating ESG assessments into investment decision-making and ownership practices to develop the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

Today PRI represents investors with $80 trillion in assets, including many of the world's largest asset owners and managers. A strong proponent of PRI since becoming a signatory in 2007, we have provided comprehensive public responses to PRI since the pilot questionnaire was introduced in 2009 and have completed all optional and mandatory questionnaires.

"Responsible investment isn’t going to solve all the problems in the world, but it’s got a role to play. We need to do more, act now, and do it with far greater ambition."
