Demonstrating its commitment to responsible investment practices, NILGOSC has been a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since 2007. This global benchmark is applicable across all asset classes and provides a forum for NILGOSC to collaborate with other like-minded investors on engagement initiatives.
NILGOSC reports on its implementation of the Principles through the PRI reporting framework on an annual basis.
The framework assesses the organisation’s overarching approach to responsible investment, the integration of responsible investment in manager selection, appointment and monitoring and active ownership within asset classes, including engagement and proxy voting.
In July 2020, NILGOSC received its assessment report for the year ended 31 March 2019. The results of this year’s assessment were positive with NILGOSC receiving an A banding for eight of the modules, including for strategy and governance, and a B for the ninth. This maintains our results from last year and means that NILGOSC is continuing to perform either in line with or above the median of signatory scores in each of the areas assessed.
