Since its creation in 2001, Novethic has built a strong network of partners. Together, we are committed to promote the integration of environmental, social and governance criteria (ESG) in the investment industry.
In France, Novethic works closely with large asset owners. In Novethic’s exclusive investor circle (Cercle des Institutionnels), insurance companies and pension funds discuss with our research analysts the latest ESG trends and their financial and/or sustainable impact on the portfolios. With our certification activity, Novethic is working with asset managers to deliver precious insights about the sustainable performance of their funds.
Beyond France, Novethic has strong ties with all relevant market players. We maintain research partnerships with the French Sustainable Investment Forums (SIF) and Eurosif about current market developments and actively contribute to research groups or new initiatives, such as the European Responsible Investment Network. With the German SIF (FNG e.V.), Novethic successfully launched a quality SRI label for the whole German-speaking market. Furthermore, Novethic has been a signatory of the PRI since 2008. In cooperation with this initiative and other major market players, we publish studies on the responsible investment market, for instance about the Montreal Carbon Pledge. In the event of the emerging Green Bonds market, Novethic contributes as observer of the Green Bond Principles..Furthermore, it has become a member of the Climate Bond Initiative. Together with other signatories it aims to further develop this promising market.
Once a year, Novethic organizes an exclusive institutional investor summit, dedicated to asset owners from all over Europe. In multiple panels, responsible investment experts discuss the most recent developments in front of almost 300 asset owners. Prominent investment firms, among them BNP Paribas Investment Partners and AXA or Allianz support actively this event.
If you are interested in being part of our network, we are delighted to discuss with you how together we can promote responsible investment.
