As a signatory of the PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) since its inception, Mirova has placed sustainable development at the heart of its approach and investment policies. The quality of its commitment is recognized by the PRI.

Launched by investors in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Program Financial Initiative (UNEP FI) and the UN Global Compact, the PRI initiative engages with an international network of signatories to implement the Principles for Responsible Investment. It aims to identify the links between investments and environmental, social and governance issues, and to support the signatories to integrate these issues in their investment and shareholder decision-making process. At the end of the annual PRI 2016-2017 evaluation cycle, scores achieved by Mirova, compared to those of all the signatories, reflect the quality of its approach to responsible investment with an A+ (maximum score) for all its investment capabilities and modules.

Summary  Scorecard
The table shown above is the summary of the evaluation report. It is designed to provide feedback to signatories to support ongoing learning and development. A brief description of the information presented in each section of this report and how it should be interpreted is presented below.

The main evaluation principles:

Assessment by Module
For each module reported, there is a section that shows:
  • Indicator scorecard
  • Section scores
  • Comparison to peer groups
Indicator Scorecard and Module Scores
This indicator scorecard summarises the scores achieved for each core and additional assessed indicator within each module. It also provides basic information about the performance of the organisation compared with other signatories that responded to that indicator. The number of stars determines an overall module score. Please refer to the assessment methodology summary for additional information about how these scores are calculated.

Section Scores
Each module is divided into several sections. The total number of stars that can be achieved in each section are added together and presented in a spider chart.

Peer Comparison
The total aggregated performance band for each module will be compared to peer groups in a series of distribution charts.
