We participate in initiatives that work to increase transparency, protect investors, and foster fair and efficient capital markets. We recognise that advocating for regulatory and legal reform can be more effective when market participants work together. Where interests are aligned, collaboration with like-minded investors can give us greater influence on issues specific to our investments and on broader, market-wide considerations. In either case, we work to encourage changes that are in the best interests of our clients.
RBC GAM is a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)1. The PRI is a global network for investors committed to incorporating ESG considerations into their investment practices and ownership policies. We are committed to putting the PRI’s six Principles of Responsible Investment into practice and believe that they are aligned with our existing approach to responsible investment. A member of RBC GAM’s Responsible Investment team sits on the Policy Committee.
We are also a signatory to the PRI Statement on ESG in Credit Ratings, which encourages credit rating agencies to proactively take ESG factors into consideration for relevant issuers.
PRI signatories commit to implement the six Principles of Responsible Investment and report on their activities and progress in implementing them.
The PRI evaluates signatories' approaches to the Principles based on its assessment methodology. Please see below for the results of our most recent Assessment Report. The group to calculate module medians includes all PRI signatories who submitted and were eligible to report on the module:
As part of the paid annual membership services, the PRI evaluates signatories' approaches to the Principles based on its assessment methodology. Once the responses are assessed, all indicator scores are aggregated and modules are assigned a numerical score, converted from a points-based system ranging from 0 to 100. Scores from the 2021 reporting cycle cannot be compared to those from previous years. Prior to 2021, module scores used an alphabetical grading (A+ to E) system.
