Media and Research Centre, Novethic works to improve knowledge and practices on Responsible Investment (RI) in the financial sector.
Novethic has created two different Labels (SRI et Green Fund) to provide members of the public with a guarantee of the transparency of the products offered by investment management firms.
The Novethic SRI Label guarantees that the processes of SRI funds are both transparent and instructive for investors. In 2014, it was awarded to 111 funds.
The Novethic Green Fund Label has been awarded since 2013 to financial products focused on environmental activities. In 2014, it was awarded to 7 funds.
As the only source of SRI data in France, Novethic analyses major market developments to help the financial sector to gain greater insight in SRI issues.
In November 2013, Novethic published the report "Green and social bonds, a promising tool", an analysis of the rapid development of this new form of financial product. With 30 new issues to, the research center reports on the non-financial purpose of these obligations. While the first issues were made by international institutions hoping to finance the transition to a low-carbon economy, green bonds have gained significant clout since the beginning of this year as a result of the issues made by large companies.
This educational one-day event is aimed at European asset owners and features round tables and theme-based workshops on the integration of ESG issues in asset management.
