Activa Capital has joined the Initiative Carbone 2020 (iC20), thereby integrating climate issues as part of Activa Capital’s overall commitment to responsible investment and ESG within its investment strategy. As a responsible investor, Activa Capital promotes performance and sustainable commitment of its portfolio companies, as drivers of value creation.
“Every company, regardless of its size, can contribute to the COP21 objective of limiting global warming to two degrees Celsius. At Activa Capital, we support mid-market companies and believe that non-financial criteria also contribute to the company’s valuation. It is therefore natural that we adhere to this project,” comments Christophe Parier, Partner at Activa Capital.
iC20 was launched in November 2015 by 5 French private equity firms. This initiative is the French private equity sector’s first collective commitment. It aims to monitor and show transparency on the subject of portfolio company greenhouse gas emissions.
