Sandro Pierri, CEO
BNP Paribas Asset Management

BNP Paribas Asset Management teams is now “the sustainable investor for a changing world.“ Aware of our responsibility, we are now more than ever determined to act every day, wherever we operate, in favour of a more sustainable economy, and in doing so, to protect the interests of our clients.

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 to sustainability

We define our sustainability approach as follows: ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) integration, stewardship (voting and engagement), a responsible business conduct policy and the implementation of sector-based exclusions.

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.
