PGGM subscribed to MSCI ESG Research’s full suite of products which support investment processes across asset classes and facilitate the implementation of the six Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
Remy Briand, managing director and head of MSCI Index and ESG Research, said, ‘We are proud to work with PGGM, a pioneer in implementing the PRI. PGGM considers sustainability issues as material and believes that ESG integration into its ownership and investment decision-making processes can have a positive impact on clients’ long term risk-adjusted financial returns. This view matches MSCI ESG Research’s own vision.’
He added, ‘PGGM applies a broad range of advanced responsible investment strategies from engagement to exclusions. We are pleased that our suite of research and ratings products can assist PGGM in these activities.’
PGGM was one of the first signatories at the PRI’s launch in April 2006.
