Eurazeo joins One Planet initiative
Eurazeo has joined the One Planet initiative, which seeks to accelerate the smooth transition toward a more sustainable, low-carbon economy and align with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
By signing the “One Planet Private Equity Funds Statement on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures", Eurazeo, alongside several other Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs), asset managers, and private investment firms, is reiterating its pledge to follow the recommendations issued by the Task Force For Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) when preparing its reports.
Having endeavoured to drive progress in ESG for many years now, the Group strongly believes the financial market has an important role to play in accelerating the transition toward a carbon-neutral economy so as to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement.
This commitment reflects the action taken by Eurazeo for the climate through its ESG O+ strategy, which aims to make the Group net carbon neutral by 2040.
In 2021, Eurazeo reiterated its ambition to support the transition toward a low-carbon economy by setting up new dedicated funds and teams.
Virginie Morgon, CEO of Eurazeo, says: “For over 15 years now, Eurazeo has been focusing its resources and energy on rising to the challenges of climate change and social inclusion. We understand the role and responsibility we have as an investor to facilitate the transition to a fairer, more inclusive society and a more environmentally sustainable economy to achieve truly meaningful growth.”
