Industry participation

The integration of BlueBay’s ESG investment policies and practices has been informed by current best practice in the industry. Our approach is to proactively evolve our strategy in conjunction with global developments.

UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

We are committed to working with others to promote ESG integration and see our membership of the PRI as an important mechanism for this to be achieved.

Founded in early 2005 by UNEP FI and the UN Global Compact, the PRI is a set of voluntary and aspirational principles giving a framework for the integration of ESG issues into mainstream investment decision making and ownership practices.

BlueBay has been a signatory of PRI since July 2013. Visit the PRI.

To date, our participation in PRI led investor collaborative initiatives and publications on ESG and fixed income include:

Visit the document library to access our annual PRI reports.


BlueBay became a CDP investor signatory in December 2016 to show support for increased corporate environmental public disclosure as such information is critical to ensuring informed investment analysis of credit relevant environmental risk factors where this is material for an issuer. As well as the increasing regulation and costs associated with GHG emissions, companies will face growing uncertainty and price volatility as the impacts of climate change and water shortages are felt throughout supply chains.

CDP has gathered the largest global collection of self-reported environmental information by leveraging the power of shareholder and lenders to help increase disclosure from companies. Specifically we have signed up to the following programmes:

  • Climate change
  • Water
  • Forests
  • Carbon action

For more information about the organisation and its programmes, visit the CDP.

Other industry involvement

While the PRI is our primary channel for working with the industry, from time to time, where appropriate and necessary to do so we will also collaborate and participate in other ESG-related activities with other stakeholders. We continue to review the potential for formal membership of other ESG organizations outside of the PRI. 

RBC Global Asset Management (GAM)
