(CSRwire) New York – “In a historic development for global financial markets, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan was today joined by a group of the world’s largest institutional investors at the international launch of the Principles for Responsible Investment.
The heads of leading institutions from 16 countries, representing more than $2 trillion in assets owned, officially signed the Principles at a special launch event at the New York Stock Exchange. The Principles were developed during a nearly year-long process convened by the UN Secretary-General and coordinated by the UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and the UN Global Compact.”

DKV Seguros and Bancaja gave their views in regards to the 6th Principle (the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.) and on how their companies are successfully implementing it. FCC Construcción gave their insight on the 7th principle (Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges).
