ESG investing risks and methodological limits: By using ESG criteria in the investment policy, the relevant Fund's objective would in particular be to better manage sustainability risk and generate sustainable, long-term returns. ESG criteria may be generated using Mirova’s proprietary models, third party models and data or a combination of both. The assessment criteria may change over time or vary depending on the sector or industry in which the relevant issuer operates. Applying ESG criteria to the investment process may lead Mirova to invest in or exclude securities for non-financial reasons, irrespective of market opportunities available. ESG data received from third parties may be incomplete, inaccurate or unavailable from time to time. As a result, there is a risk that Mirova may incorrectly assess a security or issuer, resulting in the incorrect direct or indirect inclusion or exclusion of a security in the portfolio of a Fund.
Natixis Investment Managers believes companies with stronger ESG profiles can exhibit:
1 Higher profitability
2 Lower risk of
4 Greater potential for long-term growth and innovation
Drawdown: A drawdown is an investment term that refers to the decline in value of a single investment or an investment portfolio from a relative peak value to a relative trough.
Systematic risk: Refers to a risk that affects the whole market, not a particular stock or industry.
More and more investors are demanding ESG investments
62% of institutional investors say there’s alpha to be found in ESG*
36% of individual investors say they invest in ESG because they want their investments to align with their personal values**

4 transitions that are reshaping the world—and creating opportunity*
As part of its strategy to create long-term sustainable returns, Mirova identifies companies globally that provide solutions to the challenges related to four major long-term trends. These trends will drive transformation regardless of cyclicality of the global economy.
For example, Mirova believes sea levels will continue to rise. Natural sources of fresh water will continue to become scarcer. People will continue to live longer, and innovations in technology will continue to change the way the world interacts and conducts business. Depending on where companies stand with regard to sustainability, these transitions create risks – or opportunities.

To illustrate the contribution of our investments to the primary issues of sustainable development, our ‘global’ assessment is broken down into six impact pillars: three related to environmental issues, three based on social issues.* Each pillar is assessed according to our five-point qualitative scale, from Negative to Committed.
