Blue Harvest S.A. Agriculture Division is pleased to announce that it has become a UN PRI signatory (The United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment).

The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative is an international network of investors working together to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice.

Its goal is to understand the implications of sustainability for investors and support signatories to incorporate these issues into their investment decision-making and ownership practices. In implementing the Principles, signatories contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system.

Blue Harvest S.A. is an independent asset manager specialized in agriculture investment in Denmark.

“Blue Harvest’s decision to become a UN PRI signatory reflects our dedication to sustainable investments and our progressive approach,” said Jens Ohnemus, CEO of Blue Harvest S.A.. “We consider and apply the UN PRI agriculture principles when we evaluate potential investments, and we promote this sustainable approach towards our investors”.

The 5 UN PRI principles for agriculture investments are:

  • Promoting environmental sustainability
  • Respecting labour and human rights
  • Respecting existing land and resource rights
  • Upholding high business and ethical standards
  • Reporting on activities and progress towards implementing and promoting the Principles
