SEB shortlisted for PRI Awards 2020

An independent judging panel for the PRI Awards 2020 has selected SEB Investment Management for its shortlist in the ESG incorporation initiative of the year category.

SEB Investment Management was shortlisted for its initiative to incorporate the EU taxonomy into investment management. The SEB unit is one of five organisations that made the shortlist in this category.

PRI stands for Principles for Responsible Investment and the organisation behind is a proponent of responsible investment. It works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and supports signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The organisation is supported by, but not part of, the United Nations. SEB Investment Management signed up to adopt the principles in 2008.

The PRI Awards recognise individually excellent projects conducted by signatories of all sizes, specialisms and levels of development. The signatories are invited to nominate projects across four categories: ESG incorporation, stewardship, ESG research and real-world impact.

Final winners will be announced later in the year.
