Abstract

Global Principles for Responsible Investment : a process involving the world’s major institutional investors under the auspices of the United Nations In response to the increasingly long-term focus of institutional investors and their growing sensitivity to environmental and social issues, the United Nations launched the Global Principles for Responsible Investment process in 2005. Despite areas of disagreement, in particular over the aim of such principles - improving the risk/return trade-off or integrating the consequences of asset management on society - the experts and investors involved in the project came up with a set of commitments to responsibility that they are willing to embrace. Caisse des Dépôts, which played an instrument role in this process, is currently working on integrating environmental, social and corporate governance criteria into its own asset management. What makes its approach particularly original is that it encompasses the entire portfolio, including the management of fixed-income investments. JEL classification : G11, G23, M14
