BNP AM

The sustainable investor for a changing world

Sustainable investing

At BNP Paribas Asset Management, our full range of investment strategies adopt a sustainable investment approach. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria 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 sustainable investing

Quite simply, it’s worth it. Investing sustainably 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.

Also, quite simply, it makes sense. In the long run, the global economy is better served by low-carbon energy, healthy natural ecosystems, and opportunities for all. As an investor, you can help shape a better world by investing sustainably.

Our strategies

Our strategies across all asset classes and geographies reflect a sustainable investment approach. This means they integrate ESG factors; investor stewardship; responsible business conduct and product-based exclusions; and focus on three thematic areas to promote a sustainable future: energy transition, environmental sustainability, equality and inclusive growth.

For investors that wish to invest with an even more explicit ESG angle, we also offer enhanced ESG and thematic and impact strategies as part of our Sustainable Plus suite.
