At BNP Paribas Asset Management, our aim is to achieve long-term sustainable investment returns for our clients. This means that we integrate sustainable investment practices into the heart of what we do. We want the investments we make to be a driving force for change: for our clients, their beneficiaries and the world we live in.
Because investing means the world to us, we choose to:
• clearly articulate our approach to sustainability investment, with precise targets and commitments;
• focus on key sustainability issues: the energy transition, the environment, equality and inclusive growth;
• invest for the long term, engaging with companies and regulators to promote best practices;
• Promote awareness about the role finance can play in achieving a sustainable world.
We know that we cannot achieve this alone. And we also know that sustainable investment is no longer an option, but a necessity. The greater number of investors that adopt this perspective, the faster positive change will happen.
In order to create a robust framework around our ESG philosophy, we launched our Global Sustainability Strategy in 2019. It details our approach to sustainable investment, setting clear objectives and commitments and focusses on three key sustainability themes: Energy transition, Environment and Equality (the ‘3Es’).
It reinforces our commitment to invest for the long-term and to engage with companies and regulators in order to promote best practice, as well as raise awareness about the role that finance can play in achieving a sustainable world.
