At Amundi, we believe that Impact Investing is a key pillar of Responsible Investing
Impact investing consists of taking investment decisions that have a clear objective to deliver a benefit to society, while seeking to generate measurable and concrete outcomes.
These investments aim to tackle some of the major forces reshaping our world, challenges like Climate Change, Education, and Social Inequality to name a few. Impact Investing comes in different forms depending on the target investment universe.
As one of Europe’s largest asset managers, we are fundamentally aware of our responsibilities towards the environment and society. We believe that Impact Investing is one way we can make a real difference.
Impact Investing solutions should bring together three main characteristics:
the investor’s intention to contribute to the generation of a measurable social or environmental benefit.
aiming to answer to the question, what difference would it have made if the strategy had not been implemented? If the asset had not been financed by this specific strategy?
measuring and reporting the social and/or environmental impact of the investment against the investor’s intended goals.
