RESPONSIBLE INVESTING AN PRIORITY FOR CPR AM
- CPR AM believes that investing in financial markets can be a way of fostering better practices among public and private sector players.
- Selecting investments according to criteria that go beyond the simple financial aspects by introducing an Environmental (E), Social & Societal (S) and Governance (G) dimension helps to promote responsible and sustainablegrowth.
- Socially Responsible Investment (SRI), the embodiment of sustainable development for the asset management industry, also offers a wider perspective on economic players which helps to assess their global risks and opportunities and therefore their long-term performance potential. To conduct this selection within the investment funds, CPR AM leverages on the extensive resources provided by Amundi Expertise ISR - the centre for extra-financial research and analysis shared by all the subsidiaries of our shareholder, the Amundi Group.
- Recognising the importance of taking an active part in think-tanks on Responsible Investment, CPR AM sits at the Commission in charge of SRI at the French Investment Association (Association Française de Gestion Financière - AFG). Alongside its shareholder, CPR AM has been committed to the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) promoted by the United Nations Global Compact since 2006.
