Our capacity for innovation and integration of ESG factors is a driver of value creation: investing is a positive act of engagement owing to its financial return and the social and environmental impact that it generates.
La Française Group has developed a proprietary approach to Sustainable Investment which permeates all the asset classes managed by the Group with specific adaptations made to each class: equity, corporate bonds, sovereign credit and real estate.

La Française Group firmly believes that climate change is a key issue that will shape the future both economically and socially. We must move towards a low-carbon economy. Our responsibility is to see these investments bear fruit while respecting the natural and social pact imposed by climatic and social challenges.
Our sustainable investment research team is at the heart of our investment process. Over the years, we have established a proprietary methodology to quantify ESG assessments and developed the ability to measure carbon emissions and assess the trajectory of a business's transition to a low carbon economy – a crucial element of our approach to energy transition.
In real estate, we are able to achieve a holistic view of our assets based on the data collected over the past 10 years or more. To generate a useful and sustainable level of performance, La Française has developed a roadmap that places social and environmental drivers at the heart of its strategy:
- Reducing greenhouse gases
- Re-introducing nature in the city
- Making urban environments more inclusive
