Mirova is a pioneer in financing sustainable land use, ocean management, biodiversity, and ecosystem-based climate activities, with an emphasis on blended value investments that seek to deliver the highest calibre social, environmental and economic performance.
"Althelia Funds" approach
In September 2017, Mirova created an investment platform dedicated to the conservation of biodiversity and natural capital with the acquisition of Ecosphere Capital Limited, an asset management company, now renamed Mirova Natural Capital.
The platform, with teams located in Paris, London, and Lima, develops innovative investment solutions dedicated to fighting climate change and protecting landscapes, biodiversity, soils, and maritime resources
The platform aims to support the scaling up of the “natural capital” asset class thanks to a strategic vision for its growth, robust investment processes, and appropriate support functions. Mirova’s natural capital platform, is therefore positioned as a pioneer in financing the sustainable management of natural resources and protection of biodiversity.
We strongly believe that natural capital is the next frontier of impact investment and that both specialist skills and a critical size are required to successfully address this nascent but promising market.
