ESG

We integrate Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance considerations at each step of our investment process

Financing the sustainable assets of tomorrow

In the future, financial, social and climatic stresses will occur more often. At Rivage Investment, we select and stress-test investments that address environmental and social issues to ensure that we are helping to shape a resilient economy

Our philosophy: full ESG integration across all our business lines

We consider ESG methodology at the outset of the investment process, and implement ESG risk assessment throughout the process

Accessing raw data to better assess risk exposure
We are committed to conducting a thorough and rigorous in-house analysis of our investments, which is supported by comprehensive quantitative and qualitative data from third party expert providers, independent consultants, public databases, and a thorough technical and legal audit of all our investments
Continuous ESG training
Knowledge is essential to ensure that we stay in touch with the best techniques and latest methodologies available. Our team is frequently trained on various ESG topics by expert external consultants. Our ESG analysts are CESGA(1) and ABC(2) certified.
Transparency
Transparent communication is necessary to ensure our accountability to our stakeholders. Beyond our regulatory obligations, we integrate in-depth data in ESG risk analysis, monitoring and engagement of our investments in tailored reports.
Advocacy
Rivage Investment is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and we participate in ESG integration think tanks such as the Long-Term Infrastructure Investors Association (LTIIA)
