Media and Research Centre, Novethic works to improve knowledge and practices on Responsible Investment (RI) in the financial sector.
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.
PROFILE OF RESPONSIBLE INVESTORS IN EUROPE 2014
Novethic is publishing the results of its 7th edition survey among 185 institutional investors in 13 European countries managing over €6 trillion in assets. The survey shows that these long-term investors are stepping up their requirements on responsible investment. Asset owners increasingly integrate ESG criteria with varying levels of maturity.
With public investment on the decline, the financing need for infrastructure has never been higher, both for replacing existing installations in OECD countries and for developing new facilities in emerging countries. Taking account of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria is decisive in ensuring that the installations built today are compatible with future expectations.
Leading Research Centre in France on Responsible Investment, Novethic organizes events aiming at influencing investors to integrate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues in their practices. The Novethic Annual Event is exclusively dedicated to asset owners.
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.
Launched by Novethic in 2009, the Novethic SRI Label is the first European label for SRI funds managed strictly on the basis of Environmental AND Social AND Governance (ESG) criteria.
