Responsible investments : our philosophy

For Candriam, responsible investing is based on our belief that valuing a company is not just a calculation of financial criteria, such as revenues and margin growth. We also fundamentally believe that its positioning and exposure in terms of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors will also affect its competitiveness and value over the long term.

  • Check sustainability challenges
  • Sustainable trends and stakeholders approach
  • Check for controversial activities
  • Compliance with the UN Global Compact

Responsible towards all our stakeholders

A number of factors are essential for delivering sustained added value – and they go beyond the numbers. For Candriam, the key to delivering competitive returns is to show Conviction and Responsibility, the values embedded in our name. They apply not only in our dealings with clients, but also in our relationship with employees, the environment and the communities we serve.
