Strategic partnership between Vigeo Eiris and the newspaper Investir: publication of the scores of CAC40 and SRD issuers
Since March, Vigeo Eiris and Investir, the leading French weekly financial and stock market information newspaper published by the Les Echos - Le Parisien Group, have entered into a strategic partnership aimed at establishing an exchange of information on the ESG performance of CAC40 and SRD issuers
Thus, from 14 March, the date of the first issue incorporating contributions from Vigeo Eiris, Investir will publish in a dedicated listing, on a monthly basis, as well as in the newspaper’s articles, on a weekly basis, information from Vigeo Eiris’ research, based on the latest rating available.
Because of the Agency’s raison d’être, Vigeo Eiris has been committed since its creation in 2002 to developing information related to the sustainable development of our economy and to encouraging companies’ commitments on the resulting themes. Through this action, Vigeo Eiris also wishes to contribute to raising the awareness of savers – both institutional and individual investors – of the issues and commitments made by companies with regard to ESG risks as well as the good practices implemented in this area.
Investing is fully in line with this approach, and this partnership illustrates the raison d’être of the Les Echos – Le Parisien Group to promote the emergence of a more responsible society and economy. Individual investors are paying increasing attention to all the criteria used to evaluate a listed company, whether financial or non-financial, the markers of its commitment and contribution to the common good. This is why Investir is creating a new section”Investir Responsable”.
While the first issue was dedicated to the environment and the second to Governance, this 3rd edition deals with the Social pillar.
