Our ESG factors
Axeleo Capital incorporates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors and risks across all the investment processes. Axeleo Capital combines "exclusion" and "engagement" approaches through:
• ESG screening: checking the absence of ESG controversies linked to the portfolio company prior to investment and during the ownership phasis
• Exclusion approach: exclusion of certain sectors (coal, pornography, etc.)
• Engagement: commitment from the portfolio company to target continuous improvement
Axeleo Capital - Environmental involvement
On March 23, Axeleo Capital joined the "Promotion Climat Lyonnaise", organized by WeCount. This program aimed to contribute to the creation of a community of exemplary structures in Lyon in terms of carbon footprint reduction. Reducing the carbon footprint of companies is at the heart of the fight against climate change.
We are convinced that it is through innovative tools and collective approaches that we will support a low-carbon transition.
