The PRI is an investor initiative in partnership with UNEP Finance Initiative and the United Nations Global Compact. In order to become an investment management signatory, need to commit to six initiatives which include: incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes; to be active owners and to incorporate ESG issues into ownership policies and practices; to seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which the firm invests client assets; to promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry; to work with the PRI Secretariat and other signatories to enhance their effectiveness in implementing the Principles; and to report on the firm’s activities and progress towards implementing the Principles. These principles are voluntary and aspirational. For most signatories, the commitments are a work-in-progress and provide direction for their responsible investment efforts rather than a checklist with which to comply. The only mandatory requirements are paying an annual membership fee and committing to completing the PRI Reporting Framework on an annual basis. PRI signatory status does not imply any level of skill or investment acumen nor does it imply a rating, favorable or unfavorable, of the signatories or of signatory status. It does not constitute investment advice, is not a recommendation, offer or solicitation to buy or sell any securities, or to adopt any investment strategy and should not be relied upon as such. LIM’s status as a PRI signatory is year to year and LIM is currently a PRI signatory.
The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) was set up in 2015 by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to develop voluntary, consistent climate-related financial risk disclosures for use by companies, banks, and investors in providing information to stakeholders. Longfellow is a supporter of this initiative and its broad goals. The Financial Stability Board is an international body that monitors and makes recommendations about the global financial system. It promotes international financial stability through coordinating national financial authorities and international standard-setting bodies as they work towards developing a strong regulatory, supervisory and other financial sector policies. The FSB’s charter was endorsed by members of the G20. In order to become a TCFD supporter, a firm needs to notify the TCFD that it is a supporter. There are no fees or other commitments. Being a TCFD supporter does not imply any level of skill or investment acumen nor does it imply a rating, favorable or unfavorable, of the TCFD. It does not constitute investment advice, is not a recommendation, offer or solicitation to buy or sell any securities, or to adopt any investment strategy and should not be relied upon as such. LIM’s status as a TCFD supporter is subject to change. LIM is currently a TCFD supporter.
