€2.5 billion of which are invested in General Infrastructure projects and are directly affected by Natixis Investment Managers’ decision to create Vauban Infrastructure Partners.
To support projects and companies across all sectors and stages of maturity
Throughout Mirova and its two subsidiaries, Mirova US and Mirova Natural Capital, 26 of which work in General Infrastructure and will be affected by Natixis Investment Managers’ decision to create Vauban Infrastructure Partners.
All Mirova’s portfolios have a 2°C trajectory, in line with the goals set out in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are at the core of all our investment strategies.
Our clients' expectations have changed. Beyond the pursuit of returns, there is now also a desire to invest in a way that is useful to the economy. Through its 6 asset classes, Mirova offers investment strategies which make it possible to finance projects and companies at any stage of maturity that provide solutions to sustainable development challenges while pursuing financial performance.
We believe that investors–both institutional and individual—are looking for clear investment solutions with a proven impact which are based on a strong economic rationale.
Mirova has finalized its acquisition of 100% of Mirova Natural Capital (formerly Althelia Ecosphere). This acceleration reflects the value that Mirova places on natural capital investment. Natural capital is a highly impactful asset class and a key part of Mirova’s current and future goals.
After integrating the issue of gender equality into its line of investment solutions, Mirova, an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers, leads an investor coalition to support the Women’s Empowerment Principles and achieve Gender Equality. This statement, co-signed by 66 investors, representing more than 4 trillion euros in asset under management has received the support of UN Women and the UN Global Compact.
Mirova was a vibrant presence at PRI in Person, a global conference on responsible investment organised by the eponymous Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), held in Paris on 10-12 September. Portfolio manager Soliane Varlet and Mirova’s CEO, Philippe Zaouati both spoke at the event.
The Article 173 of the French Law on Energy and Transition for Green Growth requires French investors to communicate how environmental, social, and governance issues are considered in their investment choices and processes. Going beyond compliance, the annual publication of our impact report is an opportunity for us to demonstrate why and how we have put sustainable development at the core of our investment policies and engagements. It is an opportunity for us to emphasize the way we create environmental and social value, all while simultaneously realizing financial performance. We hope that this report strengthens understanding and confidence in our responsible investment approach, as well as in responsible investment more generally.
The past 20 years have seen significant progress towards gender equality, together with an increasing awareness that the achievement of gender equality is a prerequisite for sustainable development. There is a growing consensus that educating and employing larger numbers of women can lead to economic growth. Yet despite this progress, women’s professional prospects are still far from equal to those of their male counterparts.
No matter the final objective - risk mitigation, identifying opportunities, creating impact, or all three – considering environmental and social factors alongside financial information leads to an information advantage for investors. Should we fail to limit temperature rise to 2°C or less, climate change will almost certainly wreak global havoc and lead to vast costs (IPCC, 2014). To mitigate the costs and impacts of climate change, we have no choice but to reduce emissions as quickly as possible while building resilience in the areas that will be affected.
