Affiliations support the Mill Road Progressive Governance Fund by providing access to
high-quality networks of diverse, board-ready directors.
Mill Road Capital is a signatory to the PRI. The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. It works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors; to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The PRI acts in the long-term interests: of its signatories; of the financial markets and economies in which they operate; and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.
The PRI is truly independent. It encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks, but does not operate for its own profit; it engages with global policymakers but is not associated with any government; it is supported by, but not part of, the United Nations.
