At the time of its creation, in 2006, Amundi became a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), convinced of the increasing importance of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) issues, and the need to factor them gradually into its analysis process and its investment decisions. In 2011, Amundi accordingly continued the implementation of the PRIs on several fronts:
- the centralisation of its extra-financial analysis activities within the Amundi SRI Expertise department, in order to better take into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in a growing number of funds under management,
- the definition of exclusion rules governing its classic active management,
- the implementation of a very active voting policy at General Meetings of Shareholders.
Amundi has taken an active approach to voting at the General Meetings of Shareholders of investee companies since 1996.
