AXA Investment Managers, BNP Paribas Asset Management (“BNPP AM”), Sycomore Asset Management and Mirova (an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers) are pleased to announce that they have selected the consortium comprised of Iceberg Data Lab and I Care & Consult as the research provider to develop a tool to allow investors to measure how their investments impact biodiversity. This selection was the final step of a structured, highly competitive tender process initiated by a Call for Expression of Interest (“CEI”), early this year.
Mirova is proud to announce that its efforts to invest in natural capital have been recognized with three awards at Environmental Finance's 2020 Impact Awards.
Mirova joined forces with EP Carbon, a US-based REDD+ carbon project developer, to launch an Accelerator aimed at catalysing a new generation of Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector carbon projects to mitigate and adapt to manmade climate change whilst delivering positive impacts for both biodiversity and local communities.
Mirova, today announces the final close of the Althelia Sustainable Ocean Fund (“SOF”), a fund dedicated to making pioneering impact investments into marine and coastal projects and enterprises that can deliver sustainable economic returns in fisheries, aquaculture, the circular economy and marine conservation. The fund’s final commitments are now more than $132 million. Mirova Natural Capital Limited, the London-based wholly owned subsidiary of Mirova, is the investment advisor to the SOF.
Éditions de l'observatoire presents a collection of digital works that anticipate the major themes of the world after the coronavirus. Philippe Zaouati, CEO of Mirova and a leading figure in green finance in France and Europe, has written one of these books, entitled: Finance durable : l'heure de la seconde chance (Sustainable finance: time for a second chance).
The blended finance vehicle will mobilize additional capital for sustainable agriculture and forest protection.
