Our sustainable investment’s philosophy
This commitment is reflected in our corporate purpose: "Financing the sustainable development of societies, together".
We are convinced that sustainable value creation is inseparable from a long-term vision. For this reason, our investment decisions integrate environmental, social and governance factors, considering their potential impacts on performance as well as on their ecosystems. By including extra-financial risks and opportunities in our overall approach, we aim to optimise risk-adjusted performance by promoting the positive impacts of our investment choices while limiting their negative externalities.
We offer investment solutions based on a combination of normative and sector exclusions, valuation methodologies adapted to each asset class, and engagement processes with the companies we finance. These solutions are in line with the European regulatory framework and can benefit from external labelling, attesting to the robustness of our processes. In addition, they promote the dissemination of best practices and contribute to the sharing of innovation in the asset management industry.
Sustainable investment is at the heart of our organisation, with clearly defined and separate areas of responsibility. This ensures efficient decision-making and transparent and relevant reporting to our investors, demonstrating our commitment to our objectives.
In a context that combines tightening regulations on sustainable finance with rapidly evolving scientific knowledge and methodologies, we are convinced of the need to develop collaborations and partnerships. These joint initiatives aim to promote a common understanding of the issues and coordinate responses through the development of sound scientific frameworks, methodologies and objectives. .
