Acting For The Climate

Ostrum AM firmly believes that investment has a crucial role to play in combating climate change and as such we support protection of the climate via our responsible investment management policy. Our climate commitment sits at the very center of the way we operate our business, and draws on six areas for action:

  1. Bolster our sector policy, by excluding sectors and companies that do not comply with certain fundamental responsibility standards, first and foremost our coal sector withdrawal policy.
  2. Develop a low carbon emission funding strategy.
  3. Provide a responsible and active investment management approach for our open-ended funds to support our clients in their own climate policies.
  4. Dialogue with companies to raise awareness on the risks and opportunities resulting from climate change.
  5. Contribute to financial market initiatives and industry bodies that work to fight global heating.
  6. Adopt tailored resources with a view to addressing climate challenges i.e. organization, tools, etc.

Focus on financing a low-carbon economy

Beyond our SRI management and accreditation policy, we also significantly ramped up our exposure to and expertise on sustainability bonds in 2020, with a view to playing an active role in financing projects that support the fight against climate change, drive the energy transition and foster a strong social impact.

Investors, whether institutional, banks or retail, are all looking for investments in line with their convictions, especially in terms of environment. Beyond the climate concern, they seek to participate in changes according to a Just Transition, which is socially responsible. These ambitions support the sustainable bond market, with the search for impact solutions, both from issuers – including governments – and from investors.
