actions de place

French to English translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
French term or phrase: actions de place
This term appears in the "sommaire" of a financial institution (manages retirement savings funds) publication, as follows:

"Une démarche partagée, pilotée, communiquée"
"> Mobilisation interne.........................................................................................."
"> Recherche, collaboration et ***actions de place***..........................................."
"> Reporting interne.............................................................................................."
"> Transparence externe......................................................................................"

I'm not finding the text itself very help as I don't see the term repeated in context. The gist is a discussion of their socially responsible investment policy.

Could it be as simple as "actions in the marketplace"? the only reference (TERMINUS) I find uses "at field level", which I interpret to mean something like "working at the local level"? I'm taking it that "actions" here does not refer to "equities". Am I wrong? Any suggestions.

Notes to answerer
Asker: once again, any supporting reference for such high confidence level? I'm not yet comfortable with this suggestion.

specific actions


Explanation:
Not common on Internet but when I found an example, it just seems to be 'specific actions' carried out or to be carried out in the (market)place, field, or area of activity
In your sentence, but not always, it could be read as 'appropriate actions'
