Principles for Responsible Investment
The State Universities Retirement System announces that it is an official signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), an investor initiative in partnership with the UNEP Finance Initiative and the UN Global Compact. As such, SURS joins with hundreds of other organizations which recognize that environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) issues can have a material impact on the performance of investment portfolios. For an overview of the principles, please visit the PRI website at www.unpri.org.
