The sustainable investor for a changing world


85 organisations including major global businesses, financial institutions and NGOs have announced a common vision for an effective and ambitious Global Treaty to End Plastic Pollution. The vision will form the basis for future policy engagements with governments through a newly launched Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty which will be convened by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and WWF

Robert-Alexandre Poujade, our ESG analyst, Biodiversity Lead, commented:

“Ending plastic pollution requires the involvement of everyone, including investors and states. The task is immense but the success of the Montreal Protocol reminds us that ambitious treaties can be game changers. As the sustainable investor for a changing world, BNP Paribas Asset Management wants to signal that this treaty is a turning point for preserving our health, reducing the pressure on biodiversity loss and maintaining our societies within the planetary boundaries.”

Individual portfolio management teams may hold different views and may take different investment decisions for different clients. This document does not constitute investment advice. 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 outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns. 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). Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
