Our organization is involved in discussions conducted at domestic and European level within our sector associations (AFG, PRI) via dedicated working groups on Responsible Investment.
LYXOR is a member of the AFG’s Technical committees on:
• International Commission,
• Responsible Investment,
• Corporate Governance to contribute to spread good governance practices among AFG members
For example; within these bodies, LYXOR notably participated in the 2019 AFG recommendations on corporate governance.
Within the context of the EC Action Plan “Financing Sustainable Growth”, LYXOR has participated to a recommendation paper. This paper aims to serve as input in the initiative to be launched end of Q2 2018 by the Commission for harmonizing benchmarks comprising low-carbon issuers then publish a report on the design and methodology of the low-carbon benchmark by Q2 2019.
In 2019, LYXOR has notably participated in the AFG Guide to developing a coal strategy for asset management companies– published in March 2020.
Technical committees and working groups feed the work of AFG's commissions, board of directors and strategic committee. They serve as a "Think Tank" for the profession.
