Engaging for change: Voting and engagement policies

Exercising voting rights in a consistent and transparent way is considered by Amundi as a key element of its responsible investor stance, and one of the two pillars of its stewardship philosophy, together with engagement.

As such, Amundi’s voting policy, updated each year, reflects its holistic analysis of all issues that may influence long-term value creation. It is consistent with Amundi’s active ownership approach and therefore rests on a diligent and multidimensional analysis of each company.

Our decisions are always made with a view to defending the interests of our clients by supporting the creation of sustainable long-term value.

1. Transition to a low carbon economy
