Headway Capital Partners joins UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment
As part of our ongoing effort to pursue sustainable investing, Headway is delighted to announce it has signed on to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
The PRI is an international global network of asset managers, owners and service providers working together to put responsible investment into practice. The principles, which are voluntary, aim to provide a framework for integrating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations into investment decision-making and ownership practices.
With the goal of becoming better aligned with the PRI guidelines, Headway is committed to continuing its efforts in integrating ESG considerations into its decision-making and investment processes. In the year ahead, Headway will work on fulfilling the documentation to satisfy the annual PRI reporting requirements.
Co-Founding Partner and ESG lead at Headway, Laura Shen, said: “As active investors, we have a responsibility to explore all factors that could potentially impact the financial performance of individual companies in which we invest, and these often include ESG issues. Becoming a signatory of PRI reinforces our commitment to fulfil that responsibility and it is also the right thing to do as an engaged corporate citizen.”
“We are delighted to welcome Headway as a PRI signatory”, said Fiona Reynolds, CEO of the PRI. “Their commitment demonstrates the growing awareness and importance of ESG to the investment decision-making process.”
