  • Evolving PRI Reporting: your views on the next steps Feb 24 2020 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    The PRI
    As part of our 10-year Blueprint for responsible investment – looking at how to take responsible investment forward over the next decade – we committed to undertake an extensive review of our Reporting Framework. This includes the reporting indicators themselves, our assessment methodology, the reporting outputs and the platforms to support this.

    The Reporting Framework review began with a first consultation phase between March and July 2019. The PRI has since then taken a number of steps to carefully put together a more developed proposal of what a new Reporting and Assessment framework could look like. The proposal has been heavily based on signatory feedback during the first consultation phase, with oversight from the PRI Board and support from the Reporting and Assessment Advisory Committee. We are now in the second consultation phase, asking signatories to indicate their level of support for the proposal that the PRI has put forward.

    This webinar will:
    • serve as an update on the overall Reporting and Assessment review, including the steps taken so far and what’s next;
    • outline the current Reporting and Assessment proposal out for consultation;
    • test the ideas/collect feedback through polling questions about the proposal; and,
    • answer any questions the audience might have in regards to the proposal.

  • Engaging the Asian FMCG sector on Sustainable Palm Oil Recorded: Jan 31 2020 57 mins
    PRI, WWF Singapore
    Investors play an important role in driving sustainable palm oil production practices, however insufficient demand for sustainable palm oil prevents these efforts from reaching their full potential. Buyers in Asia - who will fuel growth in demand over the coming decades - lag compared to their international peers on sustainable sourcing commitments. With 61% of palm oil globally being consumed by ten Asian nations, this creates a leakage market for unsustainable palm oil.

    This webinar aims to highlight the opportunities for investors to catalyse greater engagement with Asian downstream buyers of palm oil, with a focus on Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) companies. WWF Singapore will provide an overview of their research findings on palm oil sourcing policies and practices in Asia-based FMCG companies.

    The webinar also serves to launch the next stage of the PRI's Investor Working Group on Sustainable Palm Oil, which will focus on engaging with buyers of palm oil in the Asian FMCG sector.

    The PRI
    In 2018, as part of the PRI’s programme on championing climate action, we introduced voluntary climate change indicators in the PRI Reporting Framework, based on the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD).

    •A brief background to the TCFD recommendations and what they mean for signatories.
