Candriam used 2021 to further progress along its CSR roadmap. More ambitious goals were added to the mission to create a positive impact on the environment and society. The challenge is to be the best corporate citizen possible, for all stakeholders. Last year Candriam committed to a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions across a significant share of the investment portfolio by 2030, and to net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner.
Another priority in 2021 was to further improve diversity and inclusion at Candriam - in that respect the signing of the FEBELFIN(1) “Gender Diversity in Finance” charter represented an important milestone.
A CSR roadmap is a long journey: monitoring targets, analysing the evolution of KPIs, and establishing new directions. The important thing is to maintain the ambition.
The 2021 report describes the targets and the many initiatives deployed to keep moving forward on this CSR journey.
