Foresight has been a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (“PRI”) since 2013. PRI is a globally recognised voluntary framework concerned with the incorporation of ESG considerations into the investment decision making process. It provides a basis for potential and existing investors to judge the quality of a company’s ESG processes and positioning within an industry sector.
As a signatory to UNPRI we look to integrate the following six principles into our investment process:
Principle 1: We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes
Principle 2: We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices
Principle 3: We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest
Principle 4: We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry
Principle 5: We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles
Principle 6: We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles
