Launched at PRI London: Professional Investment Screening tool by YourSRI and South Pole Group
YourSRI and South Pole Group have launched the Professional Investment Screening tool at UN PRI's 10-year anniversary event in London today. The UN PRI Principles of Responsible Investing urge investors to integrate ESG issues into their decision-making - a goal that the freshly launched tool will support.
The Professional Investment Screening tool offers tailor-made reporting solutions, customised investment controlling reports, comprehensive portfolio audits, efficient benchmarking and peer group comparison. More importantly, it allows asset managers and owners to
- Meet national and international environmental reporting and disclosure requirements
- Measure and publicly disclose carbon footprints to stakeholders
- Extend mainstream financial reporting to improve understanding of portfolio risks and opportunities related to climate change
By partnering with South Pole Group, yourSRI has been able to leverage the most complete information on corporate emissions worldwide: The database covers all listed companies, with data is available for private equity, infrastructure and sovereigns as well.
The launch of the tool comes during the 10-year anniversaries of both South Pole Group and the PRI, who have issued a call to the investment industry to take further action on accountability, stewardship and sustainability.
