Our SRI philosophy
At Societe Generale Private Wealth Management (SGPWM), we are convinced that a strong Corporate Social Responsibility policy is synonymous with a long-term sustainable financial performance.
Within our wealth management approach, it is our fiduciary responsibility, as an asset management company, to account for the environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and factors within all our investment processes. Consistent with our patrimonial philosophy to transfer the wealth to the future generations, we aim for more sustainability and social responsibility within our investments and allow our institutional and private clients to contribute to the positive and necessary changes that are set in motion.
Socially responsible investing (SRI) combines traditional financial criteria with non-financial aspects known as ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria. The aim is to finance companies and public-sector bodies that contribute to sustainable development, regardless of their sector of activity. By influencing governance behaviors and management practices, SRI fosters the transition to a more sustainable economy.
The philosophy of our SRI commitment is based on an ESG approach, taking into account extra-financial criteria, the calculation of the carbon footprint of our portfolios and a policy of voting rights and commitment.
