ERAFP: Winner of the 7th edition of the Responsible Investor Award
Amadeis and Natixis Asset Management, through its responsible investment division, Mirova, joined up for the seventh consecutive year, in cooperation with Les Echos and LHForum, to present the Responsible Investor Award. This prize aims to reward institutional investors who have illustrated themselves as responsible investors through their actions in the last twelve months.
The jury, chaired by PlaNet Finance President Jacques Attali and comprised of top names in the Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) and sustainable development fields, presented the 2014 Responsible Investor Award to ERAFP (Etablissement de Retraite Additionnelle de la Fonction Publique), the French public service additional pension scheme.
ERAFP is a mandatory pension fund for France's 4.5 million civil servants. With more than €20 billion in assets under management*, ERAFP opted for a fully responsible investment policy from its creation in 2005:
- an SRI approach consisting notably in an SRI Charter with rating guides for each asset class in which ERAFP invests;
- guidelines on shareholder engagement, including a voting policy at general meetings.
With this award, Amadeis and Mirova are asserting their convictions and commitment in terms of responsible investment.
The other finalists, AG2R La Mondiale and Axa, who were already nominated last year, as well as Ircantec, also presented ambitious and innovative approaches concerning substantial amounts, which gave rise to extensive exchanges between the jury members.
