Consult the ESG expertise of the La Française group
Since 2008, La Française has been committed to a Sustainable Investment approach. It has been one of the strategic priorities of the development plan since 2020. The group places sustainability at the heart of the investment process, convinced that ESG factors will positively contribute to the financial performance of invested assets over time, both in terms of profitability and risk. Climate change and biodiversity are crucial structuring elements of the economic and social future.
Thus, the investment process of La Française makes it possible to select the assets best able to adapt and develop in a constantly changing world and the companies with the will to implement substantial transition strategies.
Engagement and voting
Being a responsible investor is not limited to integrating ESG criteria into investment decisions or implementing an exclusion policy, it also means exercising responsibility throughout the holding period of assets, through voting and/or commitment.
Since 2017, La Française has implemented a specific voting policy reflecting its commitments, particularly supporting the climate, and paying attention to certain themes related to the environment, social issues (diversity, pay gaps) and governance (independence, multiple mandates, remuneration). The group is attentive to external resolutions (Shareholder resolutions), and more specifically those of an environmental or social nature.
Commitment is also of crucial importance. It is an effective vehicle for encouraging transitions. It also serves as a relevant addition to our exclusion policy.
