Climate Finance Day: Natixis AM and Mirova at the heart of a climate movement
More than 1,000 international finance professionals met on 22 May at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris for Climate Finance Day. Natixis Asset Management was present alongside Mirova, its subsidiary dedicated to Responsible Investment, as a partner of the event.
The aim of Climate Finance Day was to bring together major players in the financial sector around themes linked to global warming. The day featured presentations from around 30 experts and decision-makers, including Philippe Zaouati, Chief Executive Officer of Mirova. They highlighted best practice, commitments and innovative approaches to climate issues in the finance sector.
The day demonstrated that techniques, tools and financial products are now accessible in all areas of finance for the transition of developed economies as well as developing countries to a lower carbon model, more resilient to climate change. The financial sector now appears well prepared to be involved in the run-up to COP21, to be held in Paris at the end of 2015.
As partners of the event, Natixis Asset Management and Mirova had a strong presence at Climate Finance Day. A stand decorated in Mirova's branding stood in UNESCO's main hall to welcome participants.
Philippe Zaouati, Chief Executive Officer of Mirova, also took part in a round table entitled “How can institutional investors bring their portfolios into line with 2°C?”. You can watch the full video of the round table by clicking this link.
