Eurazeo has defined roles and responsibilities for the implementation of its Responsible Investment approach.

Eurazeo created a CSR Department in 2008 which is composed of four full-time employees. The team is led by Sophie Flak, CSR and Digital Director, who reports to Nicolas Huet, General Secretary and member of the Executive Board of Eurazeo. Thanks to this set-up, CSR matters are in the Group's high-level agenda and are adopted across the Group's teams.

The Group's RI oversight responsibilities are attached to the Supervisory Board. A specialized CSR committee of the Eurazeo Supervisory Board was created in 2014 and is composed of independent members. The purpose of this CSR Committee is to assist the Board in monitoring CSR-related issues (on a consolidated scope) and to better anticipate ESG risks and opportunities. The CSR Committee also proposes recommendations on the company's policy and achievements in the field of CSR.

In addition, Idinvest Partners has appointed a dedicated Sustainability & Impact Manager whose mission is to reinforce and implement the firm's RI policy and to provide support to portfolio companies. A quarterly operational Sustainability & Impact Committee was set up, where Idinvest CEO, COO, VC Managing Partner, head of Marketing and Sustainability & Impact Manager seat.

Within Eurazeo PME, the operational committee meets monthly and includes a member of Eurazeo PME’s Executive Board, one senior associate, Eurazeo’s CSR director and deputy head of CSR. This committee makes quarterly restitutions to Eurazeo PME’s Executive Board.

The Group’s Board and ExCom members, which include two C-levels from Idinvest Partners, are incentivized on CSR related criteria.

07.7 CC. For management-level roles that assess and manage climate-related issues, provide further information on the structure and processes involved.

Eurazeo's Supervisory Board has a dedicated CSR Committee whose mission is to assist the Supervisory Board in monitoring CSR-related issues (on a consolidated scope) and providing assistance to better anticipate ESG risks, incidents and opportunities, including climate-related risks.

  • CSR issues, including climate change, feature on the Executive Board agenda at least two times per year. CSR criteria, including climate change, are taken into account for the calculation of the variable compensation of all Eurazeo Executive Board members. The members of the Executive Board have as main CSR goal to support the achievement of CSR objectives within Eurazeo and its portfolio companies, which includes decreasing carbon emissions as a proportion of EBITDA.

In 2017, Eurazeo's CEO, has strengthened the company's commitment to fight climate change by signing the Shift Project's "Decarbonize Europe Manifesto". The signatories of this manifesto call upon all European actors - individuals, businesses and public authorities - to implement concrete and coherent strategies which can meet the challenge posed by climate change and the limits of natural resources.

In 2019, Eurazeo joined the French Business Climate Pledge and signed the Global Investor Statement to Governments on Climate Change. This statement urges governments to phase out thermal coal power, put a meaningful price on carbon pollution, end subsidies for fossil fuels, and update and strengthen nationally determined contributions to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.
