Responsible Investment, the translation of sustainable development into asset management, offers a more global vision of economic players, allowing them to understand all their risks and opportunities and to better appreciate their potential for long-term performance.

CPR Asset Management is convinced that investment in the financial markets is a means of introducing better practices on the part of both public and private actors. To achieve this, CPR AM relies on the resources made available by the Amundi Expertise ESG team, a non-financial research and analysis center common to the entire Amundi group.

OUR RESPONSIBLE FUND RANGE: MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER WITH OUR CLIENTS

DEPTH OF RANGE, ACCESSIBLE TODAY

ESG solutions for all asset classes, all business sectors and all regions, designed to meet the specific needs of our clients and respect their regulatory constraints, ethical commitments, philosophies and values.

VERY REAL MOMENTUM SINCE 2016

Although CPR AM launched its first responsible investment solution in 2006, the process was launched in 2016 with structuring research work on an ESG risk-based methodology in co-development with an institutional client.

CLEARLY DEMONSTRATING FOR OUR INVESTORS THE EFFECTS OF OUR SHARED COMMITMENTS

Understanding the impact of an investment, the utility of savings, the externalities of management: these are all reasonable and increasingly relevant demands investors have today. To meet these requirements, we publish carbon footprint and ESG reports for all our funds alongside our financial reporting. In 2020, we have also delivered our first annual impact report for the Education and Climate Action funds.

Our sustainable approach has been audited and approved. Fourteen funds in our open-ended range have been awarded at least one certification in Europe. And, as part of its innovative partnership with CDP, CPR AM and Amundi were the first to use CDP temperatures to enhance ESG research capacities and measure the temperature of investment universes.
