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:  

Intentionality:

The investment’s intention is to contribute to the generation of a measurable social or environmental benefit i.e. What specific impact goal(s) did the investment set out to accomplish?

Additionality:

The positive impact that may not have otherwise occurred without this specific investment i.e. What happens if the asset was not financed by this investment?

Measurability:

The process of measuring the social and/or environmental impact of the investments i.e. How is impact of and progress towards the goal(s) measured?
