The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), launched in 2015, aim to cure or alleviate the symptoms of the great ailments of our age: poverty, poor health, education gender imbalances and climate change, among others. They propose a new development pathway, based on partnerships between governments, society, business and investors.

The goals, which all world nations have agreed to implement by 2030, are broken down into 169 specific objectives and have become a road map for responding to the major transitions in the world today. For investors in a changing world, where new sustainable development challenges arise, the notion of value has to be reinvented.

Mirova, which was created in 2012 and is an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers, applies an ESG approach to all its investments – stocks and bonds, and to listed and unlisted companies and projects. This approach aims to reconcile economic, environmental, and social value creation, and requires an approach that is tailored to each
asset class.
