Aligning Portfolios with the Paris Agreement
Published on 12/11/2019

The way investors allocate capital can and will make a difference in meeting global sustainability challenges and succeeding in the energy transition. We encourage investors to avoid overreliance on a single scenario or emissions pathway, so our method emphasizes and supports the multitude of potential pathways to 2°C, free from pre-defined sectoral allocations. It is applicable across all asset classes, versatile, and scalable, with many potential applications within the investment process. The outcome is a simple-to-interpret indicator – climate change trajectory in °C – consistent with qualitative analysis.

Acting as a Responsible Investor 2018
Published on 07/29/2019

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.
