EQ Investors gets 'straight As’ in 2020 UN PRI assessment

EQ Investors (EQ), the B Corp wealth manager recently received its 2020 assessment results from the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) getting an A rating, for strategy & governance and listed equity. 

This score is an independent recognition of EQ’s approach to sustainability investing and its Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) integrated investment process.

Each year, signatories must submit a transparency report on their investment processes. This is made publicly available and assessed by the PRI. Processes in a range of different categories are graded in a formal report which is sent back to managers in July. The assessment does not rate signatories purely at a corporate level.
