UN PRI rankings confirm our commitment
Natixis Asset Management has been a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, or UN PRI, since 2008 and is committed to promoting greater awareness of ESG aspects in its investment decisions.
The PRI initiative was set up by investors in partnership with the UNEP financial initiative and the UN Global Compact, and cooperates with an international network of signatories with the aim of applying principles for responsible investment. It endeavors to assess the relationship between investment and environmental, social and governance issues, and help signatories include these aspects in their investment and shareholding decisions.
During the 2015-2016 annual UN PRI assessment, Natixis Asset Management’s scores as compared to those for all the other signatories reflect the quality of its responsible investment approach, as it displayed ratings of A and A+ for all its investment management range and performed well above the median scores issued by the UN PRI.
Natixis Asset Management’s approach is a vital component of its CSR strategy and involves both an in-depth analysis of Environmental, Societal and Governance issues (ESG), as well as their practical inclusion in investment decisions and in the definition of exclusion policies.
Natixis Asset Management also dialogues with issuers to encourage them to improve their own ESG practices via an active voting and engagement policy. As part of this policy, more than 400 issuers were approached in 2015 in coordination with teams at Mirova, Natixis Asset Management’s responsible investment subsidiary.
The company also plays an active part in work in this domain by the Paris financial market and contributes to fundamental research into CSR issues.https://www.unpri.org/about
