Eiris CEO picked for PRI role
Peter Webster, CEO of Eiris, which offers environmental, social and governance research to investors, has been appointed to one of two non-asset owner positions open for election to the PRI Advisory Council.
Webster emphasised an interest in boosting the strength of the responsible investment industry during his pre-election statement. He suggested that work should be done to make PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) even more valuable to its signatories.
Eiris, the organisation he heads, will celebrate 30 years of work this year.
Webster added: “I am delighted to have the support of PRI members who are doing so much to advance responsible investment globally. James Gifford, the staff team and the other members of the Advisory Council have done a fantastic job in building the PRI as a considerable force for change in our field. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with other Advisory Council members in helping to take that forward.”
