Sustainable and Responsible Investment

 

In Europe, there are several thousands of self-proclaimed Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) funds. However, there is no universal norm that guarantees the extra-financial quality of these funds’ approaches. At BNP Paribas Wealth Management, our Sustainable Investments team’s role is to select the best SRI funds based on extra-financial criteria to create an offering for private clients.

WHAT ARE SUSTAINABLE INVESTMENTS?

SRI remained a marginal niche market for many years. Today investors demand more responsible investment options to create positive impact investing and to support the most sustainable companies.

Sustainable and Responsible Investing refers to the application of sustainable development principles to financial investments. In addition to financial performance, it aims at supporting activities with a strong social and/or environmental value.

Since 2006, we have developed a real expertise in SRI and Impact Investing. Our specialists select products that aim at providing social or environmental value-added and financial performance, and propose a range of services to assist you in your sustainable investment initiative.

We use a proprietary tool to analyse various criteria – fund purity; quality of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) approach; transparency; voting and engagement policy; degree of impact; sector and normative exclusion policy – in order to ascertain just how seriously a fund takes into account environmental and social issues.
