We are pleased to announce that Mazarine has become an official signatory of the PRI. As impact investors entirely focused on innovations that address water-related risks, it's a natural fit for Mazarine to participate in any effort that encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks.



What is the PRI?

The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. It works:

  • to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors;

  • 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.

What are the six Principles for Responsible Investment?

The six Principles for Responsible Investment offer a menu of possible actions for incorporating ESG issues into investment practice.


The Principles were developed by investors, for investors. In implementing them, signatories contribute to developing a more sustainable global financial system. They have attracted a global signatory base representing a majority of the world’s professionally managed investments.

  • Principle 1: We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.

  • Principle 2: We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.

  • Principle 3: We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.

  • Principle 4: We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.

  • Principle 5: We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.

  • Principle 6: We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.

What is the PRI’s relationship with the United Nations?

The United Nations (UN) has been supporting the Principles for Responsible Investment ever since their launch. The PRI has two UN partners. who play an important role in delivering the PRI’s strategy, including holding a seat each on the PRI Board, and providing additional avenues for signatories to learn, collaborate and take action towards responsible investment.
