ESG Research

Since its creation 15 years ago, Novethic analyzes how Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices of companies and countries are integrated in asset management. Novethic offers two types of reports: responsible investment market research and tailor-made ESG research.

Responsible Investment Research Reports

Responsible Investment Research Reports

In these freely available reports, Novethic covers the latest responsible investment market trends: for example, we have covered the emergence of Green Bonds or the growing importance of ESG integration in passive management. Over the last decade, following the development of responsible investment in different asset classes, specific reports have been been produced on most of them, such as sovereign bonds, money market, etc. Additionally, these reports give high-quality information on market players, such as asset owners or research agencies. In 2015, with the unprecedented investor mobilization to commit to the 2°C scenario, Novethic detailed investors’ actions to tackle climate change. In the latest exclusive study "The European green funds market", produced with the support of ADEME (French Environmental and Energy management agency), Novethic analyses the European green funds market’s trends.
