Firm-wide ESG integration Notes

Aviva Investors is proud to be a founding signatory and a strong supporter of the Principles for Responsible Investment (‘PRI’), since its inception in 2006. We previously played a formal role in the PRI (Steve Waygood, Chief Responsible Investment Officer, was a member of the Expert and Advisory Committees that wrote the Principles).

Our current involvement is being active participants in leading and supporting engagements through the PRI Clearing House, including chairing the PRI sustainable stock exchange investor working group: the longest-running PRI collaborative engagement initiative. We are also members of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (‘TCFD’) advisory committee and the UNPRI Sustainable Development Goal (‘SDGs’) Infrastructure Working Group.

In the most recent 2019 PRI assessment we scored consistently above the average signatory score and were awarded an A+ for core modules: Strategy and Governance and Listed Equity Active Ownership.
