ESG and Responsible Investing


BNP Paribas is delighted to work with the Pensions Management Institute as Expert Partner for Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) and Responsible Investing.

We have a long history of supporting responsible and sustainable investing principles, having originally launched SRI funds back in 1997.  BNP Paribas Asset Managers was also one of the founding members of the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment (UN PRI), first signing up in 2006, and continues to be an active supporter.

As a leading asset manager, our commitment to acting responsibly is central to our overall approach as an investor. And it's now been more than a decade since we embraced this principle as the way forward. Sustainable development is much more than simply a concept promoted out of conviction; we see it as a fiduciary duty.
