Key to measuring the impact of our investments The ability to demonstrate impact is now a crucial necessity for our industry. This ability is a very strong expectation expressed by our clients who want their savings to facilitate meaningful outcomes. But it is also a requirement for ourselves, as a responsible asset manager that wants to go further than the ESG analysis that covers all management processes, to measure the impact of our investments as the basis for managing them even more effectively. Since this impact is inherently indirect and occurs through the investments we make on behalf of our clients and companies, nation states and/or projects, we are dependent on the information available about these entities and their potential effects, whether positive or negative.

At BNP Paribas Asset Management, we invest in companies whose activities can depend or have an impact on what we call “natural capital”. According to the Natural Capital Coalition, it’s the stock of renewable and non-renewable natural resources (e.g., plants, animals, air, water, soils, minerals) that combine to yield a flow of benefits to people. As humans, we rely on nature’s ecosystem services and resources to provide us with our food, our medicines or our energy. For example, pollinators such as bees are responsible for five to eight percent of global food production (1). Taken all together, the value of the total global ecosystem services in 2011 was estimated at USD125 trillion per year, which is almost twice the world's gross domestic product (2).
