The exercise of voting rights and shareholder dialogue are key elements of our fiduciary responsibility and of our role as a responsible investor.
As early as 1996, Amundi implemented its own voting policy, updated every year, which includes the best corporate governance practices as well as, from 2003, social and environmental responsibility. Amundi has decided to exercise voting rights for the vast majority of French and Luxembourg funds so as to best fulfil its responsibility as a shareholder.
Very early in its approach as a responsible shareholder, Amundi also implemented a shareholder dialogue process organised around a system of alerts in the event of negative voting intentions vis-à-vis SBF120 companies and a group of companies with the largest market capitalisations in Europe.
Voting and dialogue thus allow us to be actively involved in improving the practices of the companies in which we invest.
