TORONTO Canada, October 23, 2018 – For the fourth consecutive year, Bonnefield has achieved an “A” rating from the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UN-PRI) assessment.
Bonnefield was the first farmland company in Canada to formalize its commitment to responsible investing by becoming a signatory of the UN-PRI. It has maintained an “A” rating ever since. “Responsible investing is core to the Bonnefield business model,” said Tom Eisenhauer, Bonnefield’s president, “Through our farmland lease solutions we work with some of Canada’s most progressive farm families who farm sustainability and profitably for the long term, all characteristics that favour strong returns for investors.”
The UN-PRI is a network of global investors committed to working together to put principles of responsible investing into practice. Signatories follow a set of six principles that protect the environment, benefit society, and promote sound governance through integrity and transparent reporting. As part of their commitment, signatories agree to an annual assessment of these principles.
