Our sustainable investment policy
A strong commitment and complete transparency
As responsible shareholder, environmental and social issues are at the heart of our investment choices. Since the launch of our innovative investment policy in 2008, we have committed to applying our responsible investment strategy to the entire range of our various asset classes. We are fully committed and mobilised in favour of a more sustainable economy. Our Carbon Impact strategy therefore aims to steer our capital allocation towards long-term energy transition while minimising our current Carbon Impact. It also aspires to provide a sustainable investment solution and seeks to maximise long-term returns for our clients.

La Française Sustainable Investment Research
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.
The need for a deep transition that favors decreasing GHG emissions as well as green solutions
Total worldwide CO2 emissions
Europeans, green spaces have become a key factor
Focus solely on clean energy
La Française has a positive vision of the company. We assess businesses' capacity for development and transformation; this assessment is based on a progress-based approach rather than an exclusion-based approach. However, in light of the crises and challenges which we all face, we can no longer do without selected exclusions.
ESG Analysis and Carbon Analysis
La Française's sustainable investment processes are based on an internal ESG scoring methodology, qualitative and strategic analysis. These factors are integrated as systematically and rigorously as traditional financial factors. As climate risks and opportunities increasingly drive investment performance, we have extended our carbon data management and analysis capabilities.
Vote and engagement
Vote and engagement must be conducted in conjunction with ESG analysis in order to harness all the benefits of sustainable investing. We engage with companies in order to influence the way they operate. Moreover, we are active in collaborative engagements commitment initiatives and cooperate with other asset managers in order to improve corporate environmental and social practices.
