Trustworthy and transparent data & analytics are indispensable for a successful transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy.
That’s why Urgentem - an award-winning, independent provider of transparent emissions data and climate risk analytics has become a signatory of the United Nations-supported PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment), a global network of organisations committing to key principles of responsible investment.
As a climate and data-focused business, Urgentem plays its part by providing the data & analytics that companies need to make decisions about where to invest to accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy.
“At Urgentem we believe that climate change is a system problem that requires a multidisciplinary approach and extensive stakeholder collaboration. Joining the PRI is a natural step in our mission to empower the financial sector to take a lead in the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable economy,” said Urgentem CEO Girish Narula.
The PRI works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole. Launched in New York in 2006, the PRI has grown to more than 3,900 signatories, managing over $103 trillion AUM.
PRI CEO Fiona Reynolds added: “We are very pleased to welcome Urgentem as a signatory to the PRI. In joining the PRI, Urgentem agrees to consider ESG factors in its investment and ownership decisions, and we look forward to working with the team.”
Urgentem is an award-winning, independent provider of carbon emissions data, climate risk analytics, investment services and products to the finance industry and an advocate for responsible investment to promote a sustainable model for society.
