At V.E, we are committed to supporting our clients on their ESG journey. This week, we are honoured to be associated with leading organisations, such as Sampension, Caisse des Dépots, Ircantec, Cometa, and Euronext. Here’s what just a few of our esteemed clients have to say about V.E:

 

“Sampension has been working with V.E on Environment and Climate Change issues since 2011. And for the last three years we have enjoyed using the V.E Climate Solutions with heavy use of carbon emission metrics calculations and the assessment of climate related risks. Lately Sampension has developed our fossil strategy on companies engaged in fossil activities where especially the V.E Climate Metric ‘Energy Transition Score’ with its forward-looking capabilities has proven very useful for us.”

– Steen Hauskou Bertelsen – Senior ESG & Investment Analyst – Sampension

 

“Since 2015, Caisse des Dépôts, Ircantec’s fiduciary manager, has called on V.E to carry out bi-annual assessments of the extra-financial performance of its listed funds, covering equities as well as corporate and sovereign bonds. With the help of V.E, Ircantec – whose management is delegated to Caisse des Dépôts – is able to regularly monitor the compliance of its external mandates and the progress they are making in terms of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) integration. These assessments serve as the basis for regular high-quality discussions with fund managers to ensure they are meeting Ircantec’s required standards.”

– François Timarche – Head of Delegated Financial Management – Research – SRI

 

“Since 2012, all of Ircantec’s assets have been managed according to ESG criteria, as specified in the SRI (Socially Responsible Investment) Charter. The expertise provided by V.E via its Climate Solutions enables the fund management department to address and adapt to major issues and changes in the SRI market. Likewise, Ircantec welcomes the extension of coverage and the methodological changes V.E has enacted which enable it to deepen and further refine its ESG analysis of listed funds.”

– François Timarche – Head of Delegated Financial Management – Research – SRI

 

“Cometa has been benefiting from the Carbon Portfolio Analysis of V.E for many years, since we signed the Montreal Pledge. With a very extensive database, V.E can provide us with complete information on corporate emissions worldwide, greenhouse gas contributors and climate related risks. Thanks to this screening we can easily disclose ESG risk, in line with the European regulations.”

– Maurizio Agazzi – General Manager of Cometa Pension Fund

 

“We partnered with V.E in 2015 with the launch of a series of international ESG indices. Since then, the number of successful Euronext ESG indices using V.E data has surged. We particularly appreciate their speed to deliver, as well as the diversity of metrics they can provide us with from E, S, G, Energy Transition, UNGC analysis, and Green Share. A real one-stop shop! They have greatly contributed to Euronext’s leading position in Europe on ESG indices for Structured Products. Today we are facing new challenges, with their expertise and our experience together we aim at establishing the new ESG benchmark in Europe, the Euronext Eurozone ESG Large 80 index backed by a suite of derivatives contracts.”

– Fabrice Rahmouni – Head of Indices – Euronext
