In the 21st century, humanity will be confronted with one of the greatest challenges it has ever faced: climate change caused by the rapid increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions due to human activities. Tomorrow’s world will not be the same. There are no areas in our lives that will escape the consequences of this environmental crisis.

Due to the urgency of the situation, governments and public authorities are taking action. The European recovery plan or "Green Deal", which focuses on the key sectors of decarbonation - renewable energies, clean mobility, renovation of buildings – is an example of an initiative to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Faced with this challenge, DNCA Finance has integrated this issue into its approach as a responsible investor with the conviction that this transformation is both a risk factor and a source of opportunities.
