The sustainable investor for a changing world

Sustainability

What sustainability means to us

At BNP Paribas Asset Management, our aim is to achieve long-term sustainable investment returns for our clients. This means that we integrate sustainable investment practices into the heart of what we do. We want the investments we make to be a driving force for change: for our clients, their beneficiaries and the world we live in.

Because investing means the world to us, we choose to:

  • clearly articulate our approach to sustainability investment, with precise targets and commitments
  • focus on key sustainability issues: energy transition, the environment, equality and inclusive growth
  • invest for the long term, engaging with companies and regulators to promote best practices
  • promote awareness about the role ­finance can play in achieving a sustainable world

We know we can’t achieve this alone. And we also know that sustainable investment is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. The greater the number of investors that adopt this perspective, the faster positive change will happen.
We invite our clients and our peers to join us so that together we can assert our positive influence on the sustainability of long-term investment returns.
