“With around 60% of its workforce in France, Amundi stands up for its European culture and roots. This foundation still defines part of our identity today. At the same time, we are resolutely international with entities established in Asia and America.

A lasting relationship with our clients implies a long-term vision, which means that we have to invest in the company's workforce. This is one of the keys to our commitment as an employer: to foster talent in-house by providing training programmes to enable every employee to realise his or her full potential in an equal opportunity environment.

The men and women of Amundi form a community, sharing a culture of expertise and focusing on growing to serve our clients.”

    Extra-financial analysis forms the substance of responsible finance, assessing the quality of issuers' environmental, social and governance (ESG) policy. Underlying this approach is the conviction that the association of financial and general interest criteria can consolidate value creation. By taking into account the interests of all the stakeholders, it generates the confidence that is a prerequisite for success while limiting risks.Extra-financial analysis is highly pragmatic: rather than judging any business sector, it analyses how, within a given sector, companies handle ESG opportunities and risks. Only the most advanced companies are selected: this is best-in-class analysis.In order to round out this approach and encourage companies to adopt best practices, we have implemented an engagement policy. While voting at shareholders' General Meetings remains our main path of action, fostering dialogue “for influence” with companies on a regular basis is essential. When spurred by structured extra-financial analysis and a stronger engagement policy, competition among the best companies can become a source of progress.We rely on significant resources: 15 analysts dedicated to ESG issues (extra-financial analysis, quantitative research, corporate governance). The analysts meet with companies, contribute to defining Amundi Group's voting policy at General Meetings, initiate dialogue with companies and draft research protocols to assess the impact of ESG criteria on fund performance; The analyses of partners: ESG rating agencies, European and American, with a global reach Entities specialising in given themes Data providers on controversies 1 distribution interface, available in real time in the fund managers' tools, giving them access to corporate and government issuers' extra-financial ratings alongside financial ratings;
