Media and Research Centre, Novethic works to improve knowledge and practices on Responsible Investment (RI) in the financial sector.
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.
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.
French listed companies have in the last decade significantly increased the volume of information they disclose on sustainability. Novethic’s 2014 Barometer investigates how listed French real estate companies clarify their environmental action plans and produce evidence on their progress. An increasing number of real estate companies are setting publicly disclosed targets to improve the environmental performance of their portfolios, but half of them are struggling to meet their objectives.
