Aware of the need to immediately start deploying ambitious solutions to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy, Bâtirente agreed in November 2015, AGF, a Toronto-based management company, to manage for it a global equity portfolio built around the theme of sustainable growth with no involvement in fossil fuels that will provide exposure to environmental solutions in the areas of water and wastewater management and treatment, energy and electricity technologies, health and safety, healthy lifestyles, waste management and pollution control.
In November 2017, we allocated 2.5% of our assets under management to a fund dedicated entirely to green bonds. In December 2018, we allocated an additional 2%.
As soon as it is implemented in 2019, we will redeploy our listed global real estate assets to the new ESG global real estate fund listed by our manager.
Thanks to these major investments, Bâtirente now has nearly 12% of its total funds invested directly in the energy transition.
