For the fourth consecutive year, Candriam has been awarded a score of A+, the top score available, by Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
“Candriam’s consistent achievement in obtaining the highest possible score available from PRI demonstrates our long-term success in putting ESG and transparency at the core of our daily work,” said Isabelle Cabie, Global Head of Responsible Development at Candriam.
Signatories to the PRI must answer for their entire activities wide-ranging questions on subjects such as how responsible investment is developed and promoted, how climate-related risks and opportunities are factored into investment strategies, how products or investment strategies integrate ESG factors, how voting rights and dialogue with investee companies are implemented’.
The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment and was created on the initiative of former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan in April 2006. Its mission is to help investors integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their practical decision-making process.
Candriam was one of the first European asset managers to sign the PRI charter in June of that year.
