The Group's private debt business line is managed by Idinvest Partners.
Having signed the PRI and IC International (former Initiative Climate 2020) , Idinvest is convinced that solid and sustainable growth can only be achieved by taking into account the impacts of economic activities throughout the company. This is the reason why at Idinvest, ESG (the three pillars of extra-financial reporting) have become Sustainability and Impact. The difference is not purely semantic but reflects a change in mindset. Whilst ESG can have a passive dimension, Idinvest wishes to be active, an agent of change that makes a positive contribution to confronting the long-term challenges faced by society.
With its Sustainability & Impact philosophy, Idinvest is one of the pioneers in measuring the impact of its portfolio in relation to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and is working towards making improvements day after day. As a result of this pioneer approach, Idinvest contributed to the development of an impact mapping tool and conducted an assessment of its portfolios' exposure to the SDGs in 2019. The assessment consisted of an analysis of the potential contribution and/or obstruction of its portfolio companies to the achievement of the SDGs and allowed for the identification of portfolio companies presenting high risks and opportunities for the transition towards a more sustainable and inclusive society. The impact mapping tool will be reviewed and improved in order to reconduct the assessment in 2020.
