Since 2019, certain activities have been excluded from all the group’s investments because of their harmful impact on biodiversity.
LBP AM’s responsibility as a shareholder is reflected in a dialogue conducted on issues encountered by companies, in order to support them in their transition. This support – direct or in cooperation with other investors – helps assess the progress made in favour of biodiversity.

They are also committed to monitoring and publishing the biodiversity footprint of their investments.
LBP AM/TFSA support regulatory initiatives aimed at strengthening actions of companies, including financial companies, in favour of biodiversity preservation.
