Rischi idrici: Come costruire strategie di investimento orientate all’acqua?

In un mondo alle prese con l'aumento dei problemi idrici, dare priorità all'acqua come impegno aziendale strategico non è mai stato così importante. Gli impatti operativi e finanziari dei rischi idrici hanno iniziato a materializzarsi. La nostra convinzione è che le aziende debbano considerare e gestire l'acqua come il rischio strategico e operativo a lungo termine che può rappresentare.

As a Responsible investor, Candriam pays particular attention to the corporate governance policies, structures and practices of the companies in which it invests on behalf of its customers and the funds under management.

Starting from 2022, Candriam decided to pre-announce some of its voting intentions ahead of the related general meetings when such pre-declaration may answer to stakehoders’ demand of improved transparency, serve an engagement objective or as an escalation measure.

Having passed the mid-year point, we are able to discern some major trends emerging from the 2021 voting season.


Lessons from the 2020 Voting Season

All around the world, there have been significant delays and cancellations of annual general meetings (AGMs) during the early stages of the pandemic, leading to audit process failures in Asian markets and other challenges. However, this did not stop some of the emerging voting trends, such as climate-related resolutions, which featured prominently at a number of important meetings.


2019 Engagement report

The year 2019 was rich and eventful, spanning a complex list of topics. This summary focuses on our three Conviction Topics, which together accounted for more than two-thirds of our total direct issuer dialogues. These same three topics, Energy Transition, Fair Working Conditions, and Business Ethics, have marked our efforts over the last five years, and will be the stepping stones to 2020 and beyond.


2018 Engagement report

Integrating ESG factors into the financial analysis of companies, engaging in constructive dialogue with them to encourage best practices and exercising the shareholder vote should be the norm for any committed investor for whom ESG is more than just three letters. At Candriam, these three actions have been a reality in our daily lives as investors for nearly 20 years.

Case Studies

2024 Case Study – Active Engagement: Costa Rica

Sovereign engagement is rare, and direct engagement even more so. Not only is access difficult to obtain, but great care must be taken to avoid even the appearance of lobbying or interfering.

Despite constraints on both their human and financial capital, Small- and Mid-Sized companies (SMIDs) share similar business ambitions with their larger counterparts while competing for the same talent. They need talent to fuel their growth, yet that rapid growth can strain employees. Attracting and retaining talent, while simultaneously maintaining workforce productivity, poses a challenge.


2023 Case Study – Active Engagement: Unilever

Sebbene Unilever fosse già un esempio di “migliore pratica” nella trasparenza nutrizionale dell’industria alimentare, un gruppo di lavoro di investitori ritiene che l’intera industria alimentare debba fare meglio. E buone notizie! Quando Unilever ha alzato la posta, altri importanti produttori alimentari l’hanno subito seguito adottando le nuove e più forti best practice..

2021 Case Study – Active Engagement: Access to medicines, or how equality has become a central issue for pharma businesses

L’obiettivo di Candriam nei suoi investimenti nel settore sanitario è quello di individuare, tra le aziende capaci di scoprire e produrre le soluzioni di domani, quelle più innovative.


2021 Case Study – Active Engagement: Financial Institutions Climate Change Survey

Gli impatti del cambiamento climatico sul settore finanziario sono già misurati in miliardi, solo per gli eventi meteorologici estremi.

2020 Case Study – Active Engagement: Collective Efforts: the Workforce Disclosure Initiative

La crisi Covid ha riacceso i riflettori sulla “S” dei fattori ESG. Gli investitori hanno bisogno di maggiore trasparenza per analizzare non solo i dipendenti, ma anche la flessibilità e la preparazione delle aziende in crisi come quella del Covid.

Candriam Policies

Candriam Exclusion Policy

This controversial activity policy is the concrete expression of Candriam’s sustainability leadership. It defines which activities, due to their widely recognised ethical and economic unsustainability, are to be excluded from Candriam’s investment portfolios across asset classes. Candriam recognises the important role that asset managers play in tackling major global issues, such as health and climate change, and strives to be at the forefront of sustainability by advancing its policies and practices.


Candriam Climate Strategy

Our climate is changing faster and faster, bringing our world closer to disastrous social and economic consequences every year. We are reaching the tipping point on every planetary boundary, meaning that at the current pace, we will reach a point of no return in this decade, threatening the future of both our planet and mankind.


Candriam Sustainable Integration Policy

Financial markets play a pivotal role in the financing of companies’ activities to support economic growth and foster innovation. However, economic development and growth should be sustainable in the long run benefiting everyone across generations. In 2015, both the COP21 Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) clearly articulated the need to shift the emphasis from measuring economic growth to appraising and incentivizing sustainable economic development for all.


Candriam Sustainable Investment Policy

Sustainability is rooted in Candriam's operating model and forms a key part of our corporate culture. Candriam’s sustainable development strategy leads us to incorporate sustainability trends shaping the world of tomorrow within the process of defining our firm’s strategic orientations. Our philosophy is to establish and maintain a balance between responsible behaviour towards all stakeholders and the pursuit of sustainable financial performance.


Candriam Human Rights Policy

We believe that respecting and upholding Human Rights is part of our corporate responsibility, as an employer, in our operations, and as an asset manager to whom investors entrust their portfolios. We support the principles enshrined in key international conventions and standards that guide our Human Rights Policy, which applies to all Candriam staff and stakeholders, across the company’s operations and investment activities.


Candriam Climate Policy

Climate change is one of the most urgent and important challenges that society and investors are facing today.

CSR Report

Corporate Social Responsibility Report - Driving progress for people and the planet

2022 was a year of increasing complexity and challenges. Following the recovery from the global pandemic, the world was confronted with new adverse realities - geopolitical unrest from the Russia-Ukraine conflict, inflationary pressures, and escalating supply chain issues that brought about a global cost-of-living crisis. As we navigate these uncertainties, it becomes more important than ever to stand firm in our environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals.


Stewardship Report

Stewardship, a term often used when speaking of Voting and Engagement, includes those functions but is really an end-to-end process of responsibility, from establishing good governance at the top, all the way to delivering and safeguarding the investments which meet our clients’ needs. This report draws on all the specialty topics we report on – our philosophy and approach, investment process Transparency Codes, Voting, Corporate Social Responsibility, and how we determine client needs.

Does ESG Do What it Says? The New SFDR Requirements
