At Amundi Pioneer, sustainable investing is part of our heritage. Pioneer Fund, which dates back to 1928, is recognized as one of the first mutual funds to deploy socially responsible investment criteria, avoiding companies in the alcohol, tobacco and gaming industries for much of its history.*
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors have been a core element of Amundi Pioneer’s research process and play a key role in investment decisions across our actively managed investment strategies. The founder of Pioneer Fund, Phil Carret, believed that investing in “good” companies with sustainable business models at reasonable valuations could enhance performance results over time. This approach to investing continues to be a core focus of our firm today.
Amundi Pioneer integrates ESG analysis into its investment process by focusing on companies with sustainable business models and evaluating ESG-related risks as part of our proprietary research recommendations used throughout the firm. Environmental assessment categories typically include climate change, natural resource use, waste management and environmental opportunities. Social assessment categories typically include human capital, product safety and social opportunities. Governance assessment categories typically include corporate governance, business ethics and government and public policy.

Sustainable investors for decades, we've strengthened our resources dedicated to ESG
We offer a range of products with high sustainability ratings and two funds that, by prospectus, incorporate ESG factors into the investment process.
Our parent company, Amundi, is a leading player with €280 billion euros of responsible assets under management1
Amundi Pioneer’s research and investment processes are further strengthened by leveraging the extensive experience and ESG related resources of our parent company, Amundi Asset Management (“Amundi”). With more than €275 billion1 in socially responsible investment-related assets under management, Amundi is one of Europe’s largest ESG investors.
The integration of Amundi Pioneer and Amundi insights results in a global perspective and greater understanding of ESG factors, including their influence on the long-term sustainability of a company’s business, investor preferences, the regulatory landscape, and potential impact on global markets overall. As such, we believe the firm is well suited to pursue mandates focused on investing in companies with good ESG practices, while pursuing our primary objectives of growth, income generation and/or capital preservation.
