The Principles for Responsible Investment in Farmland

In 2011 a group of PRI signatories developed The Principles for Responsible Investment in Farmland (known as the ‘Farmland Principles’). Although aligned with the PRI agenda, the Principles were not part of the PRI. In September 2014 the Farmland Principles were incorporated within the PRI as Guidance for Responsible Investment in Farmland. The PRI together with the PRI Farmland Working Group will continue developing tools to support signatories implementing the PRI within their farmland investments. The details about the transition can be found here.

You can find more information and resources about PRI activities on farmland on the commodities page. You can also contact Titia Sjenitzer, Senior Manager of Alternative and Themed Investments at the PRI or Justin Ourso, last Convenor of the Farmland Principles at AOurso@tiaa-cref.org.
