The PRI have developed this DDQ in collaboration with the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) and the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB) to:

  • improve transparency around ESG factors in the decision-making process,
  • reduce the reporting burden, and enhance consistency and comparability of data across the industry.
