Combine value creation and sustainable development


A NEW APPROACH TO RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT


Mirova’s philosophy is based on the conviction that integrating sustainable development themes can generate solutions that create value for investors over the long term.

This philosophy revolves around three strategies:
• the link between finance and the real economy, by investing in companies with innovative business models,

• value creation by identifying sustainable assets capable of delivering performance over the long term,

• and lastly, responsibility and engagement by becoming actively involved in improving corporate, business sector and financial practices.
 


AN ENGAGED INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT BASED ON SOUND INVESTMENT PROCESSES AND IN-DEPTH COMPANY SELECTION


Mirova offers a global responsible investing approach with a single offer revolving around 5 pillars:

Listed equities: investing in global companies that provide innovative solutions through a global approach structured around 8 major sustainable development themes.(1)
