Launched by the United Nations in 2006, the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) is the leading global initiative in support of responsible investment, with more than 3,000 signatories worldwide. The UN PRI promotes a set of six voluntary investment principles that offer guidance on incorporating environmental, social and governance factors into investment practices.

In the 2023 assessment, Keensight Capital has been rated 5 stars in each of three categories: Policy Governance and Strategy, Direct – Private Equity and Confidence – Building Measures. This achievement demonstrates the quality of the ESG and sustainability strategy pursued by the team.
