SRI theme strategies

Living better – an increasingly widespread theme

People are becoming more and more aware of the necessity of improving the quality of the environment and the wellbeing of populations. They are adopting good habits in their daily lives and, sometimes, feel the desire to go further. Sustainable and responsible investment is another way to have a positive impact.

How can investment promote better living?

Investment has the power to promote and generate a positive impact. BNPP AM’s thematic funds allow investors to invest in a selection of companies, activities, products and services related to the protection of the environment and/or social wellbeing.
Because they offer concrete solutions for sustainable development, positive impact solutions can offer investors attractive growth prospects. Integrating environmental, social and governance factors into our investment decisions enables us to avoid a certain number of risks without negatively affecting potential return.

BNPP AM offers investors a range of SRI funds focusing on themes that we consider to be the priorities in this field:

  • the fight against climate change; renewable energies; the reduction of CO2 emissions
  • water management: improving the processing and distribution of quality water for as many people as possible; saving water during transport and in agricultural production; limiting the pollution of groundwater
  • sustainable food: ensuring responsible agricultural production; reducing pollution; promoting quality nutrition
  • the environment: ensuring a low-carbon economy; reducing waste; improving water conservation; promoting ecological agriculture
  • human development: promoting quality nutrition, drinking water, basic hygiene conditions, basic healthcare at acceptable prices, education and training, “ageing well”.

Committed to sustainable and responsible investing since 1997, BNP Paribas Asset Management manages EUR 35 billion of SRI assets (at 31/12/2017) across a comprehensive range of asset classes.
Our SRI portfolios include

  • best-in-class strategies focusing on investments in issuers that we consider the best positioned in each sector in terms of their environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices
  • strategic investment themes enabling clients to invest in companies whose activities relate to specific social and environmental themes and whose financial potential we view as promising.

Moreover, BNPP AM applies environmental, social, and governance-related selection criteria to practically all of its open-ended funds.
