BNP AM makes several Sustainability Centre appointments

RELATED TOPICS​

BNP Paribas Asset Management (BNPP AM) has made several appointments within its Sustainability Centre to accelerate and strengthen its sustainable investment offering.

At the core of BNPP AM’s approach to sustainability, the Sustainability Centre provides investment teams with industry and sector research, ESG data and analysis of over 13,000 issuers.  It also supports the integration of sustainability considerations across the organisation, including adapting to regulatory requirements and developing sustainability-themed investment strategies to meet investor requirements.

Jane Ambachtsheer, Global Head of Sustainability at BNPP AM, comments: “With everyone’s attention on COP26, the focus on sustainable investing continues to gain momentum, and pressure is growing from all stakeholders to actively contribute to a zero carbon, more inclusive economy.  

“The Sustainability Centre is at the heart of BNPP AM’s drive to improve the quality of, and access, to ESG[1] data amid a more challenging regulatory environment in which sustainability is growing in importance and coming under mounting scrutiny.  

“These latest appointments further strengthen our sustainability capabilities in order to deliver our ambitious roadmap, accelerate our capabilities within thematic investing and maintain our leadership position as the sustainable investor for a changing world.”
