PRI in person 2019 - What are the major issues facing investors?
As a pioneer in the field of responsible investment, Amundi attended the annual PRI (Principles for responsible investment), PRI in Person, event, which took place in Paris from 10 to 12 September.
Find out the testimonials of Amundi's experts, gathered during this event, on investors' issues for responsible finance, which were at the heart of the debates during these three days: support for the energy transition, taking into account ESG factors in all asset classes, diversification of ESG investment solutions and the rise of impact investing, influence of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)...
