Our role in society
Climate change, growing social inequalities and environmental damage caused by human activity can have a severe impact on the performance of companies in which asset management companies invest.
To successfully meet today’s challenges and ensure a prosperous and sustainable economy for tomorrow, long-term investors have a role to play by using the leverage that their investments and their voices bring to positively influence companies’ practices. We firmly believe that if the financial sector takes better account of social and environmental externalities, it will deliver value while making the world a better place and the global economy more sustainable.
BNPP AM takes its share of responsibility and intends to be the driving force behind this transformation. Thus, we work with our clients to meet tomorrow’s challenges today and contribute to a more secure economic future.
Our approach includes ESG integration across investments, stewardship, a forward-looking perspective (the “3Es”), responsible business conduct and sector-based exclusions.LEARN MORE
We are committed to being a “future maker”, using our investments and our influence towards companies and policy makers, to advocate for a low-carbon, environmentally sustainable and inclusive economy.LEARN MORE
Sustainable finance regulation
An age of sustainability is supplanting the 200-year-long era of carbon. The financial services industry, partly by choice and partly by regulatory edict, is helping to facilitate the transition.LEARN MORE
ESG = Environmental, Social and Governance

Investments are subject to market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investments in securities. The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial investment. There is no guarantee that the performance objective will be achieved.
Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).
