Responsible investment

Enhancing our management of extra-financial aspects

 

Natixis Asset Management’s responsible investment policy reflects the business dimension of its CSR1 approach.This policy encompasses a broad array of initiatives and approaches, appropriately implemented into all its investment processes depending on their specific features.

The aim of this approach is to promote the integration of extra-financial factors within overall investment decisions, as recommended by major international agreements such as the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN-PRI), to which Natixis Asset Management has been a signatory since 2008. The framework of this policy rests on four core areas:

  • Understand the challenges of sustainable development, analyze their impact on each industry and sector and assess a broad universe of issuers.
     
  • Practice responsible asset management, taking extra-financial criteria into account in investment decisions by incorporating ESG2 criteria and by the definition of exclusion policies.
     
  • Encourage issuers to improve their ESG practices through the exercise of voting activity and constructive dialogue with companies.
     
  • Define RI/ESG standards alongside our peers, and promote responsible asset management.
