Engagement for all investors

Amundi pools the best of the Group’s capabilities to advise and work alongside asset owners in their “responsible” approach.

Engagement: accompanying issuers to better practices


Reflecting the continuous dialogue between Amundi and companies, our engagement for influence aims to support companies in taking into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues on specific themes.

Since 2019 and in particular in 2020, Amundi has been focusing its voting and engagement efforts on two priority themes: the energy transition and social cohesion. Both topics represent systemic risks for companies as well as opportunities for those who wish to integrate them in a positive way.

Amundi’s engagement process relies on a multi-faced approach:

  • ongoing engagement on specific challenges or sustainability risks faced by an issuer or a sector,
  • thematic engagement comprising of to cross-sectorial engagement on key topics such as climate or the living wage,
  • collaborative engagement favoring collective efforts to encourage issuers to act collectively on key sustainable issues.

In 2020, Amundi engaged with issuers on 6 main areas, 2378 issues were raised with 878 companies.
