The Ireland Strategic Investment Fund as a large and long-term investor in Ireland has a duty to actively contribute to the sustainability of the Irish economy for future generations and to encourage others to do the same.
ISIF believes that responsibly managed companies are best placed to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage and provide strong, long-term investment opportunities. Organisations that manage ESG factors effectively are more likely to endure and create sustainable value over the long term.
ISIF endeavours to be a responsible investor, actively integrating ESG factors into its decision-making processes with a view to enhancing the overall outcomes for the Fund and ultimately its beneficial owner. ISIF (through its predecessor the National Pension Reserve Fund (NPRF)) was a founding signatory to the PRI in 2006 and has continuously reviewed, adapted and enhanced its approach to Responsible Investment (RI) in response to both mandate and strategic changes since then.
