The Candriam Institute
for Sustainable Development

We combine Responsible Investing with philanthropy in our work with communities to help build a society which leaves no one behind.

Sustainable and responsible investing has been at the heart of Candriam for 25 years. However our efforts towards achieving an inclusive and sustainable society don't stop at our investments. Through the Candriam Institute for Sustainable Development we seek to effect meaningful social change, deliver a positive environmental impact and ultimately play our part in leaving a better world for future generations.

Our "Dual-Impact" approach

Creating positive change

We play our part in Sustainable Finance by integrating ESG analysis across our full range of traditional strategies and by offering a flagship range of Sustainable and thematic products that seek to deliver both financial and purpose driven outcomes. Our responsible approach to investing leads naturally to our philanthropic efforts.
