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.
