The University of Edinburgh was the first university in Europe to sign the UN Principles of Responsible Investment.
The approach the University takes to responsible investment fully supports the stated values and mission of the University. The University of Edinburgh aims to be a truly global university benefiting society. It is committed to principles of academic freedom in teaching and research. The Mission of the University, as a world-leading centre of academic excellence, requires that alongside our commitments to research, teaching and employability outcomes we also make: “A significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to Scotland, the UK and the world, promoting health, economic growth and cultural wellbeing.”
