Geneva-based impact investor AlphaMundi Group Ltd today announced that it has been certified as a
B Corporation™, testifying to its commitment toward operating its business as a force for good. The
company also announced that it has signed on to the United Nations-supported Principles for
Responsible Investment (PRI), which address the integration of environmental, social, and
governance (ESG) considerations into investment practices.
B Corp Certification, overseen by the nonprofit organization B Lab, acknowledges businesses that
meet exacting criteria in social and environmental responsibility, transparency, and accountability.
The certification process involves a comprehensive assessment, evaluating aspects such as employee
welfare, community impact, and ecological practices. Companies with B Corp Certification commit to
a balanced approach, prioritizing positive contributions to both societal and environmental well-
being alongside financial considerations.
The UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) are a global initiative guiding investors
to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into decision-making. Launched in
2006, PRI encourages responsible investment practices to foster sustainability and align financial
objectives with broader societal goals. With signatories spanning various sectors, PRI plays a pivotal
role in shaping a more ethical and sustainable investment landscape, promoting long-term value
creation while addressing pressing global challenges.

will support us in our path of continuous improvement.”
