UN PRI: Natixis Asset Management stands out again for its commitments


Natixis Asset Management has been a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, or UN PRI, since 2008 and is committed to promoting greater awareness of CSR (Corporate social responsibility) aspects in its investment decisions.

Natixis Asset Management’s scores in the 2016-2017 annual UN PRI assessment again stood out from the other signatories. The company does better than the median scores for its peer group as issued by the UN PRI once more, with A+ for strategy and governance, and ratings of A to A+ for its entire investment management range.

Natixis Asset Management’s approach is a vital component of its CSR strategy and involves both an in-depth analysis of Environmental, Societal and Governance issues (ESG), as well as their practical inclusion in investment decisions and in the definition of exclusion policies. Natixis Asset Management’s results testify to the relevance of its approach as it works to promote a more sustainable economic and financial model.

Natixis Asset Management also dialogues with issuers to encourage them to improve their own ESG practices via an active voting and engagement policy. As part of this policy, more than 300 issuers were approached in 2016 in coordination with teams at Mirova, Natixis Asset Management’s responsible investment subsidiary. The also company plays an active part in work in this domain by the Paris financial market and contributes to fundamental research into CSR issues.

The PRI initiative was set up by investors in partnership with the UNEP financial initiative and the UN Global Compact, and cooperates with an international network of signatories with the aim of applying principles for responsible investment. It endeavors to assess the relationship between investment and environmental, social and governance issues, and help signatories include these aspects in their investment and shareholding decisions.
