French Central Bank Formalises RI Stance (IPE)

The French central bank has adopted a responsible investment charter that will govern the management of some €20bn of assets.

The charter is part of Banque de France’s vision of its corporate social responsibility, which it formally documented in a charter at the end of 2016.

The central bank said its responsible investment charter reflected an ambition to be “exemplary” in how it took into account its corporate social responsibility “in all its dimensions” and applied this to its role as an institutional investor.
