At BNP Paribas Asset Management, our goal is to integrate a sustainable approach across our investment strategies. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria, for applicable strategies, are central to the way we come up with investment ideas, create portfolios, control risk and use our influence with companies and markets to improve sustainability.
Why invest with a sustainable approach
Investing with a sustainable approach can be financially rewarding by, for example, steering clear of companies that are exposed to pollution lawsuits, labour unrest, shareholder disputes or other events that can damage their reputation and business performance.
Our planet is also served better with low-carbon energy, environmental sustainability, and equality and inclusive growth. As an investor, you can help shape a better world through your investment choices.
Sustainability is core to our business and our investment decisions. We are focused on achieving long-term sustainable returns for our clients.

Our goal is to integrate sustainability across our investment strategies.

For investors wishing to go further, we also offer a range of sustainable thematic strategies (classified as Article 9 according to European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation).
