At Paris, the heads of 18 major institutional investors from nine countries, representing more than $2 trillion in assets, will sign up to the Principles. They join a group of 32 institutional asset owners representing the original $2 trillion which backed the Principles during the international launch in New York.
“In fact, the Principles provide a blueprint for what is fast becoming the only way to do business in the globalizing markets of the 21st Century,” added Mme Barbut.
”The Principles for Responsible Investment forge a much-needed link between corporate responsibility and decision-making in the financial markets,” said Georg Kell, Executive Head of the Global Compact Office. “Through their focus on engagement, not divestment, the Principles represent a major milestone in our efforts to root global business in universal values to achieve a more sustainable global economy.”
