ESG and Responsible Investing

At Merieux Equity Partners we are committed to responsible and sustainable investments, and we are convinced that ESG is an assurance of sustainability and performance that will benefit to all its stakeholders.

We are signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) promoted by the United Nations, as well as the Investors for Growth Charter and the Gender Equality Charter of France Invest.
We are also a member of Initiative Climat International (iC International) and believe that private equity has to play its part in the context of a deepening climate emergency.

Our ESG actions are carried out in coordination with France Invest within the framework of several commissions : Talents and Diversity, Impact and Sustainibility.

Donations are also part of our ESG internal programme. We support several initiatives, such as : L’Entreprise des Possibles, La Nuit du Bien Commun, Espérance Banlieues…

ESG and SFDR Communication

Mérieux Equity Partners set up policies on the integration of sustainability risks in the investment decision-making process.

The investment policy integrates environmental and social characteristics of the investments. Since 2020, a periodical report related to extra-financial characteristics is available for investors.

The remuneration policy is consistent with the integration of sustainability risks. Since 2021, dedicated objectives for the Executive Officers and the Managing Partners were set up accordingly, to increase ESG awareness, to incorporate and integrate ESG factors throughout the entire investment cycle and to ensure proper ESG indicators reporting (Fund Annual Report and Incident monitoring). Therefore, ESG objectives are now included in the annual assessment and remuneration of such employees.
