行動の頻度

説明

          Mirova supports three university chairs: 

- The Energie et Prospérité (Energy and Prosperity) Chair which was created in 2015 to clarify decisions made by public and private entities steering the energy transition. The research conducted is related to the effects of the energy transition on the economy (growth, employment, debt), different industries (transport, construction, energy production, finance), and their related means of financing. Housed by the Fondation du Risque, the Chair is supported by the ADEME, Air Liquide, the Agence Française de Développement, Caisse des Dépôts, Mirova, Schneider Electric, and the SNCF.

- The Théorie de l’entreprise: modèles de gouvernance & création collective (Company Theory: Corporate Governance & Collective Creation Models) Chair which is directed by Blanche Segrestin at the Centre de Gestion Scientifique at the MINES ParisTech School. The Chair’s research essentially deals with a vision of the company as a collective creation and re-vamping models and mechanisms for fair and solidary governance. Mirova is associated with research articles published by students at the Chair on governance issues.

- In 2018 Mirova initiated a partnership with Yale University on sustainable finance. The aim of the initiative is to bring together three different types of schools: Legal, Business and Forestry with a focus on the quality of data to provide investors and companies with a relevant mapping of environmental “hot spots” for better environmental assessment.

In 2018, Philippe Zaouati as the Chair of FInance for Tomorrow and CEO of Mirova, along with Pascal Canfin, General Director of WWF France, was assigned by the French Ministries of the Economy and of the Environment to work on a public report to develop dedicated blended finance tools to accelerate private investment in the French energy transition. This report, for which the Mirova Policy officer was the rapporteur, was submitted to the two ministers in December 2018. Its results are now being analysed to create France Transition, a dedicated initiative to foster collaboration among French public institutions to develop blended finance instruments for targeted transition issues with a lack of financing. 

The report is publicly available on the Finance for Tomorrow and WWF website: https://financefortomorrow.com/2018/12/18/rapport-canfin-zaouati/

In 2019, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has announced the implementation of the recommendation of the report with the creation of “France Ecological Transition”, currently examined by the two Ministries in charge of finance and of the environment.

As a front line player in the RI industry, Mirova is committed to engage in favour of responsible and sustainable finance through its advocacy/public policy engagement.

Advocacy Goals: The purpose is to develop sustainable finance and to achieve higher standards for the asset management industry, so as to collectively build a finance with positive environmental and social impacts. Advocacy is conducted in order to promote our vision within the responsible investment market.
