2 Awarded by UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment. Principles for Responsible Investment Scores. PRI grades are based on information reported directly by PRI signatories, of which investment managers totalled 1,924 for 2020, 1,119 for 2019, 1,120 for 2018 and 935 for 2017. All signatories are eligible to participate and must complete a questionnaire to be included. The underlying information submitted by signatories is not audited by the PRI or any other party acting on its behalf. Signatories report on their responsible investment activities by responding to asset-specific modules in the Reporting Framework. Each module houses a variety of indicators that address specific topics of responsible investment. Signatories’ answers are then assessed and results are compiled into an Assessment Report. The Assessment Report includes indicator scores, summarizing the individual scores achieved and comparing them to the median; section scores, grouping similar indicator scores together into categories (e.g. policy, assurance, governance) and comparing them to the median; module scores, aggregating all the indicator scores within a module to assign one of six performance bands (from E to A+).

The PRI Leaders’ Group is based on a different theme each year. In 2020, the theme is climate reporting. All investor signatories – asset owners and investment managers – were eligible. To be considered for the Leaders’ Group 2020, signatories had to demonstrate a strategic approach to aligning their organization with the FSB’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in their 2020 responses to the PRI Reporting Framework.’ To assess this, UN PRI looked at their publicly disclosed responses throughout the climate change reporting indicators of the Strategy and Governance (SG) module, as well as whether they reported: publicly expressing support for the TCFD; having a board-approved implementation plan in place; how their organization is using scenario analysis; considering both short- and long-term climate risks; and working towards specific climate-related targets. Having screened all signatories against this year’s theme, a combined score using responses from across the Reporting Framework was used to identify, from that pool, the Leaders’ Group 2020.
