Paris, 3rd December 2013. Today, for the sixth time, Novethic will be convening asset owners from across Europe to its annual conference, “ESG Strategies for responsible investors”. The day’s aim is to encourage exchanges between investors on the integration of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria in asset management and to foster the debate on responsible investment. Novethic’s research centre will be using the occasion to launch two major new reports: a survey on the ESG practices of European asset owners and a study on green and social bonds.
