The social and solidarity economy
The social and solidarity economy (SSE) is a segment of the economy recognised and defined under French law as of July 31, 2017. It brings together structures that reconcile social utility and financial performance, whose common objective is the creation of local jobs, social inclusion and territorial cohesion. These structures can be associations, cooperatives, mutual corporations, foundations, or social enterprises with commercial status.
The SSE makes it possible to seek social and/or environmental performance by financing needs that are insufficiently met by traditional financing channels in France.
Mirova is the leading social impact asset management company in France. Thanks to a strategy that is wide open to the social and solidarity ecosystem, we work with entrepreneurs and financiers in the sector. We support, among others, France Active, Habitat et Humanisme, the Fondation Abbé Pierre, Terres de Liens, EHD, Simplon and Green Creative.

Investing for employment in partnership with France Active
As part of its Jobs Creation Equity strategy, Mirova has entered into a partnership with France Active, the leading solidarity funder in France. This strategy includes an allowance dedicated to social impact investing. It is partly invested directly in France Active Investissement, and partly devoted to co-financing projects identified by France Active through a grassroots network that is unique in France.
