ESG Investment Solutions
Amundi investment teams have developed specific expertises to assist our clients in achieving their specific ESG investment objectives by offering a wide range of ESG investment solutions span across asset classes and regions, from broad ESG Integration to specific themes.
Long-Standing player in ESG integration
Amundi, a pioneer in Responsible Investment (RI), has continuously strengthened its ambition to integrate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria through its investment strategies and to reinforce its engagement process to support issuers in making progress.
Since the announcement of its ambitious action plan in 2018, Amundi has established an unprecedented level of ESG integration throughout the organisation. To this end, Amundi has committed to integrating ESG criteria across the entire portfolio management value chain, notably through:
- The systematic integration of ESG criteria within the active investment & portfolio construction process.
- The strengthening of dialogue with corporates on ESG topics through a pro-active engagement policy.
- A voting policy emphasizing Environmental and Social dimensions as top priorities.
This integration is done through :
ESG certified and labelled funds
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to responsible investing and as a solutions provider, we are committed to developing simple and ready to-use tools to help investors easily implement their ESG strategy depending on their objectives, constraints and the level of ESG focus they wish to implement in their portfolios.
In addition, the expertise of our index team and our proprietary index management tools allow us to develop fully bespoke solutions for our clients aimed at deploying their individual ESG policies.
An expanded range to address investor's various sustainability objectives
To complete our large range of advisory services and investment solutions, we provide our clients with ESG services that can reinforce their commitment to a more sustainable future. To do so, we offer three types of services:
- Engagement and voting: At Amundi, we have defined an engagement and voting policy that we apply to our assets under management. We believe our role is to engage with issuers to allow for constant improvement and awareness of ESG-related topics through dialogue or voting at general assemblies.
- Reporting: As clients need to monitor their financial and ESG guidelines and report the results of their investments, we offer different types of reporting according to the client’s underlying strategy and ESG policy.
- ESG Training & Knowledge Transfer: ESG investing is evolving at a fast pace and Amundi is committed to disseminating best practices, research and thought-leadership through content sharing, high level conferences and training programs.
Standard ESG services are included with Responsible Investment portfolio management when relevant.

ESG risk management
Building on the quality and depth of Amundi’s ESG database, CPR AM, Amundi’s subsidiary dedicated to multifactor and thematic investments, developed innovative solutions implementing a complementary risk-based ESG approach. These solutions seek to enhance value creation potential through the selection of appropriate criteria combinations.
1) Multi-sector approach
This solution based on financial materiality relies both on the ESG rating and a selection of financially relevant E, S & G criteria (“weak signals”) in order to define an ESG investment universe allowing for the implementation of an additional financial alpha.
2) ESG Thematic
Those solutions range rely on strong equity thematic investment opportunities backed by megatrends with a demanding sustainable approach. Such approach relies both on a selection of E, S & G criteria adapted to the material challenges of the theme, along with a strict monitoring of controversies and impact.
