Engage: Entreprises are encouraged to implement sustainable business models
Our purpose is to get a return on our members’ retirement savings in a farsighted, transparent, responsible and profitable manner. The long-term financial and broader interests of our members are at the very core of our action. This is why we intervene with enterprises in which we invest, so as to help them improve the management of their extrafinancial risks.
In 2016, Bâtirente established a corporation called Æquo – Shareholder Engagement Services, in partnership with the Regroupement pour la responsabilité sociale des entreprises (RRSE) and transferred the previously internalized shareholder engagement activities. The purpose of spinning-off one of Bâtirente’s responsible investment activities is to make these services available to the institutional investment community in Québec and beyond.

Bâtirente complements its shareholder engagement with a more global approach that consists in building and strengthening strategic alliances with key financial sector participants. The goal of this approach is to pool the efforts of all organizations to maximize their influence and to gain greater leverage within the financial market.
