Sustainable investing

 

Investing sustainably means putting your money to work on issues ranging from adapting to and mitigating climate change, improving working conditions and diversity, to tackling inequality. More and more, investors want to invest sustainably: they want to combine investing for a financial return with a positive contribution to the environment, society or both. At BNP Paribas Asset Management (BNPP AM), our full suite of investment strategies integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations. Our product range thus reflects an understanding of your need for long-term sustainable investment performance and your ambitions for a better world.

WHY SUSTAINABLE INVESTING?

Quite simply, it is worth it. Financially, the results from investing with an appreciation of the environment, high social standards and responsible business conduct – the pillars of sustainable investing – can be attractive.

Investing sustainably mitigates risks, for example, by steering clear of companies that are exposed to pollution lawsuits, labour unrest, shareholder revolts or other events that can damage their reputation and their economic results. So, taking into account these risks, the long-term performance of a sustainable investment approach can be better than that of traditional investment approach.

Also, quite simply, it makes sense. In the long run, our planet is served better with low-carbon energy, environmental sustainability, and equality and inclusive growth. As an investor, you can help shape a better world by investing sustainably.

HOW?

Investing for your own good and that of the wider world means investing with an asset manager with extensive experience, a global presence, and proven research capabilities.

We have been at the forefront of sustainable investing for almost 20 years: in 2002, we launched our first socially responsible fund. Since then, we have built out our offering, rigorously integrating ESG criteria across the board, and working hard to align all our portfolios with international standards and the Paris Agreement goals.
