“Behind the Scenes” with Philippe Zaouati, CEO of Mirova

Social and environmental challenges peak at the start of the millennium. We have our backs to the wall, facing our responsibilities...

  • The world is facing massive environmental, climate and social challenges and finance has its role to play.
  • Socially responsible investing has gained new momentum following the Paris Agreement.
  • Mirova’s goal is to create bridges between investors and the companies and opportunities that are in a position to help address these challenges.
Mirova is operated in the US through Mirova US LLC. Mirova was previously a division of Ostrum AM and benefits from around 30 years of experience in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing through Ostrum AM.

Investing involves risk, including the risk of loss. Sustainable investing focuses on investments in companies that relate to certain sustainable development themes and demonstrate adherence to environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices; therefore the universe of investments may be limited and investors may not be able to take advantage of the same opportunities or market trends as investors that do not use such criteria. This could have a negative impact on an investor's overall performance depending on whether such investments are in or out of favor.
