01 | Engagement for influence: accompanying companies to better practices

Reflecting the continuous dialogue between Amundi and companies, our engagement for influence aims to support companies in taking into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues on specific themes, which are often controversial or subjected to a strong legislative momentum.

Since 2013, our team of ESG analysts has been particularly active on 6 themes:

  • Respect for human rights in the oil and mining sectors
  • The fight against food waste in the agri-food and retail sectors
  • The responsible exercise of influencing practices of pharmaceutical companies and the automotive industry
  • Conflict minerals
  • The environmental impact of coal in the electricity generation sector
  • Child labor in the cocoa and tobacco industry

These works are subject to an engagement report published annually by the ESG Analysis and Corporate Governance team.

An active support to collective initiatives

Supporting collective initiatives is also a way to spread ESG best practices. Amundi actively supports more than twenty initiatives, including the PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment), Finance for Tomorrow, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and the Green Bond Principles.

02 | Vote and shareholder dialogue: fully playing our role as an involved shareholder

For Amundi, the financial performance of companies can only be sustainable in a long-term vision. It is through this framework of analysis that Amundi fully plays its role as a shareholder, particularly in the exercise of its voting rights and shareholder dialogue.
