Its website, novethic.fr, is a top draw among professional journalists, who use it to help them decipher the economic and financial impacts of major social and environmental issues.
Novethic is also a research centre focusing on Responsible Investment, analysing how Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria are incorporated into financial management. It carries out studies enabling investors to be benchmarked and provides labels for financial products (RSI and green funds).
As a Caisse des Dépôts subsidiary, it aims to educate on all subjects, with climate at the top of the list, which is why it has launched Carbon Risk, a web application that explains the links between fossil fuels, keeping global warming at 2°, and the commitments made by States, investors and companies. The app is available on carbon-risk.fr.
Novethic organises an annual international colloquium for institutional investors with the aim of making account taking of ESG issues the general rule in financial management.
