Published on 06/28/2021 Awards

The Environmental Finance Sustainable Investment Awards 2021 (SIA 2021) awarded sustainable investment pure-player Mirova the "Real assets manager of the year" award for the second year running, for its activities on nature-based solutions and renewable energy infrastructure. Its fifth fund dedicated to financing energy transition infrastructure was also rewarded with the "Renewables fund of the year" award.


Environmental Finance’s 2021 Sustainable Investment Awards seek to recognise asset managers, analysts and data providers incorporating ESG across all asset classes.

"A leader in ESG and sustainability"

Named "Real assets manager of the year" for the second time in a row, Mirova is "a leader in ESG and sustainability" which has made some "nice hires and set up some new 'exotic' real assets funds in 2020", according to one of the SIA 2021 judges.

Through its natural capital platform, Mirova has indeed been leading the way on natural capital investing, which is evolving fast from niche investment strategy to a mainstream asset class. The purpose-native company supports projects and companies that address climate change, the protection of landscapes, biodiversity, soil and marine resources, as well as improve local communities livelihoods.

In addition to the field of natural capital, Mirova's Energy Transition Infrastructure team has continued developing investment strategies enabling investors to support the energy transition through the construction and management of wind, solar, hydro, biomass and low-carbon mobility infrastructures projects throughout Europe.

"A trailblazing fund with a passionate team behind it"

Mirova was also given the "Renewables fund of the year" award, a tremendous recognition of the relevance of its Mirova Energy Transition 5 strategy, which just launched a few months ago. One SIA 2021 judge said that Mirova’s fund was "a trailblazing fund with a passionate team behind it. A worthy first place."


In February 2021, Mirova launched its fifth fundraising in the energy transition infrastructure field, aiming to expand its investment scope into new technologies for energy transition and targeting a final close above a billion euros.

An recognized, award-winning infrastructure manager, Mirova relies on a 20 experts team with complementary skills (industrial project development, mergers & acquisitions, transactions services, carbon market, public policy…) and experience to bear on the financing and management of complex renewable energy projects.
