ISR label – Investissment Socialement Responsable

What stands behind the label?

The ISR label is a label managed by the French Ministry of Economy and Finance that sets a standard for financial products in France and Europe.

The ISR label uses a two-step process consisting of a suitability check and a verification that the funds meet the label criteria.
