Our Taxonomy for Sustainable Solutions

Defining activities and practices that contribute to a sustainable future

Recent efforts to structure the sustainable investment market have led to the development of various regional frameworks. So far, these efforts remain centered around the environmental pillar, with a strong focus on activities.

Until further developments, Mirova is taking a proactive stance by publicly sharing its internal taxonomy, which relates to existing frameworks but also adopting a broader approach, including beneficial products and services as well as advanced practices/strategies to run operations sustainably, on both environmental and social fronts. 

This classification enables us to assess the contribution of companies and projects to a sustainable future, per our 5-level opinion scale as described in our Approach to Impact and ESG Assessment and in relation with our Sector Vision papers as well as our Minimum Standards Policy

Mirova has chosen to use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a reference point for its internal mapping, recognizing the SDGs as the most comprehensive approach to addressing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) challenges.
