Mirova and Natixis are among the 65 companies that took part in the Act4nature event that was held on 10 July 2018, in order to demonstrate their commitment to the protection, enhancement and restoration of biodiversity. The initiative was launched by EpE (Entreprises pour l’Environnement) and its partners. Represented companies have adhered to 10 mutual commitments, and each of them presented their specific commitments. Mirova especially committed to:
  • raising substantial capitals for biodiversity by promoting the asset class towards institutional investors;
  • publishing impact indicators and contributing to their enhancement;
  • defending biodiversity and natural capital aspects in market instances
Mirova, through the acquisition of a 51% equity ownership stake in impact investment manager Althelia Ecosphere in September 2017, was of the first financial players to take part in these aspects. The Mirova-Althelia platform provides institutional investors with innovative strategies specifically targeting the mitigation of and the adaptation to climate change and the protection of landscapes, biodiversity, soils and marine resources. The Land Degradation Neutrality project1 aims at land degradation neutrality.

The report of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) on the state of land degradation around the world, published on 27 March 2018, highlighted the major challenge of the fight against land degradation.
