Leading Research Centre in France on Responsible Investment, Novethic organizes events to push investors to integrate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues in their practices.
THE PREVIOUS EDITIONS:
THE 2013 EDITION
For the sixth edition, nearly 130 asset owners came together at an exceptional venue to discuss ESG strategies from a range of international standpoints. The participants tried out an innovative new format, the “Wake-Up Call”, in which the audience was free to respond to the topics presented by the four sponsors.
ESG considerations and long-term investment: a natural combination? The answer will be revealed by the European Association of Long-Term Investors (ELTI), a group of 16 financial institutions that have joined forces to foster a more sustainable, innovative and employment-rich growth model for Europe.
Novethic launches a new format with its four partners. Each takes the floor for 15 minutes to raise the investor audience’s awareness on a chosen aspect of environmental, social or governance issues impacting long-term investment.

The increasing use of ESG analysis is extending its reach to new asset classes. How are today’s investors implementing their strategies in relation to sovereign, green and SRI bonds, property investments and impact investing?
ENERGY AND CLIMATE RISK: ARE YOU USING THE RIGHT ANALYSIS?
Climate change, social and environmental risks in the extractive sector and “carbon bubbles” on the stock exchanges: energy and climate risks are perceived differently by different investors, contrasting perspectives from around Europe.
