As part of our on-going efforts to foster sustainable investing, MiddleGame Ventures is excited to announce today that it has signed on to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
The PRI is an international global network of asset managers, owners and service providers working together to put responsible investment into practice. The principles, which are voluntary, aim to provide a framework for integrating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations into investment decision-making and ownership practices.
MiddleGame Ventures strongly believes in promoting a financial services ecosystem that sustains and supports ESG standards. In order to become better aligned with the guidelines of the PRI, MiddleGame Ventures has begun to take a series of steps in 2021, including adherence internally across the MGV team and externally through our investment process. We view this as not just the right thing to do, but also optimizing outcomes for our portfolio companies and investors.
As we partner with entrepreneurs to re-architect the financial services landscape, we are mindful of the need to do so in a more sustainable, diverse and ethical manner. We look forward to working with the PRI and growing awareness around responsible investing.
