Today climate is the most obvious ESG concern for investors. "Today we can no longer deny the impacts of climate change; they are in our daily news. NGO initiatives, civic initiatives and international cooperation have paved the way for collective awareness where everyone has a role to play. Investors and management companies, all of us, have a key role in financing the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Through our investments, we are financially exposed to the climatic risks that weigh on companies. To turn these risks into opportunities, companies' environmental transparency is crucial, "says Valérie Baudson, Managing Director of CPR AM.

  

Climate change, a challenge for CPR AM

A climate impact rating for our funds

Climate change is a challenge that we can no longer afford to ignore. As a management company sensitive to the risk of global warming, our decision to use a more standardized approach thanks to the Climetrics license for the rating of our equity funds is part of a global approach that aims to promote sustainable finance and support everyone's awareness of climate issues.

The rating currently focuses on five CPR AM Thematic Equity Funds that publicly display their Climetrics results. These funds received a high Climetrics rating - 4 or 5 sheets out of 5 - evidence that they invest in carbon-efficient companies, climate-related risk management and the integration of new technologies that support the energy transition.
