BNPP AM'S MONTHLY NEWSLETTER - 20 years of SRI funds at BNPP AM

September 27, 2022

Sustainable investing is rooted in BNPP AM's values and history.  In 2002 we created a dedicated ESG research team and launched our first socially responsible fund, and today we are continuing to strengthen our range of SRI-labelled funds.

  • 1971: The first SRI fund, Pax World Fund, was launched by two American pastors from the Methodist Church.  It was created from challenging corporate responsibility within human conflict and ecological disasters.
     
  • 2002: BNPP AM launched its first SRI fund, BNP Paribas Etheis1, taking a leading role in local initiatives in responsible investment and sustainable development, in France, Europe and globally.
     
  • 2006: BNPP AM became a founding signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (‘PRI’), an international network of investors supported by the United Nations.
  • 2019: BNPP AM launched its Global Sustainability Strategy, underpinning the pillars of its sustainable investment strategy across all of the company's activities.
     
  • As at 30 June 2022, BNPP AM had 153 funds with European SRI labels, representing assets under management of EUR 116.3 billion.

Pierre Moulin, BNPP AM Executive Committe Member

“We have been committed to SRI investment for two decades, and have grown and evolved with the various developments and regulations that have shaped the SRI market to become ‘The sustainable investor for a changing world’. This 20 year anniversary also represents a strong endorsement of our SRI labelling strategy.”
