INTEGRATED STRATEGY


For more than 35 years, HarbourVest has sought to align its interests with those of our investors, investment partners, and staff around the world. Doing so on a consistent basis has allowed us to proudly build and maintain a culture of ethical behavior, transparency, and social responsibility in both our investments and operations.


GOVERNANCE


PRI Signatory Since 2013

The United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is a global investor initiative with over 2,600 signatories representing more than $89 trillion in assets. PRI’s role is to advance the integration of ESG into analysis and decision-making through thought leadership, the creation of tools, guidance, and engagement.


As a proud signatory, HarbourVest is committed to incorporating the six PRI principles into our investment processes when evaluating all opportunities. We also undergo a yearly PRI assessment through which our investing, strategy, and governance efforts are measured alongside many of our peers. We recorded strong results in our 2019 assessment across the three major categories: Strategy and Governance, Indirect Investments (including primary funds and secondary investments), and Direct Investments.
