Demeter presents its new ESG & Impact 2020 Report
Our ESG & Impact 2020 Report is now available: Demeter ESG & Impact Report 2020
As a pioneer and leader in investment for ecological transition, we are more than ever convinced that it is essential to invest over the long term in the key sectors: the environment, energy, agriculture and health. In 2019, Demeter has been particularly dynamic by successfully investing in 22 new companies and making 19 reinvestments. This remarkable performance reflects our know-how, the dynamism of our markets and the talent of our entrepreneurs.
With more than one billion euros in assets under management, Demeter is strengthening its management model combining financial performance and commitment to a high level of ESG requirements. The ESG indicators of the companies in our portfolio in 2019 bear witness to this: their activities have resulted in 4.3 million tonnes of CO2 avoided and 575 GWh of renewable electricity produced.
Our new ESG & Impact Report demonstrates that we have strengthened our commitment to all aspects of the ESG approach with the creation of ESG Ambassadors within each activity, the reinforcement of our commitments to gender equality, our actions for biodiversity and impact measures, particularly with our in-depth territorial impact methodology developed with Carbone 4.
In 2019, we received 4 awards for our role as a pioneer and leader in ESG.
