Anne-Laurence Roucher, Deputy CEO, Head of Private Equity and Natural Capital at Mirova, explains what tools Mirova has developed to measure carbon footprint of projects and companies it is invested in.
Mirova as a responsible investor has developed its own assessment framework for environmental and social issues to guide its investment decisions, including ESG criteria and Sustainable Development Goals.
Whether voluntarily or in response to regulation, investors are increasingly looking at the links between their portfolios and climate change. So far, there is no clear consensus as to how to perform such evaluations.
S&P Trucost and Natixis IM Solutions detail the extension of the 2°C alignment assessment methodology to private and illiquid asset classes in order to obtain consistent multi-sector, multi-asset class analyses.
