French SRI boutique Sycomore Asset Management has announced having sealed an official partnership with the COP21 conference hosted in Paris between 30 November and 11 December.
“Faced with what is one of the major challenges of the 21st century, all stakeholders must take an active role in building a more resilient, low-carbon economy.
“As responsible investors, we are keen to support initiatives that help speed along the transition to a greener economy,” said Christine Kolb, founding associate of Sycomore AM.
Sycomore AM has announced the upcoming launch of a fund investing in listed companies that develop and market eco-efficient solutions.
“We are convinced that an investment strategy can no longer overlook the environmental impact of the products and services offered by companies,” explained Jean-Guillaume Péladan, strategic director of the energy and ecological transition at Sycomore AM.
Sycomore AM has over €3bn of assets under management in open-ended funds and dedicated mandates.
