We are pleased to have achieved high scores for our practices from the United Nations–supported Principles for Responsible Investing (“PRI”) in 2020 and to have earned high marks in every PRI scoring category. ClearBridge has been a signatory since 2008.
The PRI is a voluntary framework for institutional investors who commit to integrate ESG factors into their investment analysis and decision-making practices. As a signatory, ClearBridge adheres to the six guiding principles of the PRI. We take our participation in the PRI very seriously and strive in all we do to be a leading example of sustainability for our clients, our peers and the companies we own in our portfolios.
As a leading practitioner of ESG integration, ClearBridge regularly contributes to PRI publications, research and awareness efforts. Mary Jane McQuillen, portfolio manager and ClearBridge’s Head of ESG Investment, serves on the PRI’s Listed Equities Steering Committee and ESG Integration Sub-Committee.
