Sanne signs Principles for Responsible Investment

Sanne is now a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI). 

The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is recognised as the leading global network for investors committed to integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations into investment practices.

Karlien de Bruin, Head of ESG at Sanne, notes that through this commitment, Sanne pledges to uphold and promote the PRI principles. “Operating responsibly is a core part of our business as we continue to embrace and engrain ESG principles into our daily work lives.

“As a global business Sanne has an impact on people all over the world – including clients, employees, suppliers, regulators, investors, and the wider communities it serves. We also appreciate that ESG and responsible investing are important business considerations for all our clients and their investors, and we are therefore dedicated to be at the forefront of responsible and sustainable investing.”

Fiona Reynolds, CEO of the PRI, says: “Sustainable investment is one of the world’s fastest-growing investment trends and Sanne will play a key role in advancing the PRI framework for alternative asset managers to integrate ESG considerations into their investment ownership practices.”

Sanne’s Chief Strategy Officer, Jason Bingham, says: “Sanne is very excited to join the distinguished list of companies as a PRI signatory and look forward to working with leaders in the financial services industry to advance responsible investing globally. Reviewing our performance in relation to ESG issues helps us understand the impact of our actions on people and the planet. It is important not only to mark the progress we continue to make in many areas, but also to be candid in acknowledging where we have more to do.”

As part of Sanne’s commitment to uphold the six PRI principles, the Group will undertake a series of steps in 2021 to advance the PRI guidelines internally. These include enhancing the Group’s ESG strategy, followed by a consideration of how these can be integrated into the services we offer to our clients in the alternative assets sector.
