CALL FOR RESEARCH Deadline 3 July 2016 – PRI CALL FOR RESEARCH | FACTORS OF SUCCESS FOR INVESTOR-COMPANY ENGAGEMENT ON ESG ISSUES

 
With an exciting funding opportunity for academic research that will bring together scholars and investment practitioners, the PRI invites expressions of interest (EoI) for research building evidence and insight into which factors create successful investor-company engagement on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Up to £10,000 (equivalent) is available to support this internationally-focused research project.

The research should address the following key questions:

· How can investors and companies constructively engage on ESG issues?

· How effective are investor collaborations in engaging with companies on ESG issues and influencing corporate behaviour?

From the EoI, candidates will be shortlisted and one will be invited to submit a full proposal. The successful candidate will be provided with access to data from the PRI’s Collaboration Platform (formerly the Clearinghouse) and PRI coordinated collaborative engagements.

The project is expected to start in August 2016 and be completed within 12 months.

Preference will be given to EoI’s submitted by teams with members in different regions of the world and with at least one academic and one investment practitioner. Multidisciplinary approaches are welcomed.

The deadline to submit expressions of interest is 3 July 2016.
