Action for Climate and Sustainability

Planet and people

At Andera Partners, we are convinced that our companies provide an ideal platform to engage in social responsibility. In addition to maximising profit, which ensures their independence, companies must now also contribute to solutions that benefit the planet and its inhabitants

All our commitments

Partnerships with associations since 2018

Hand in hand

Andera Partners has established partnerships with associations whose actions reflect our values. We work at different levels, providing funding, expertise and in-kind support, on an ad hoc or long-term basis. Education, healthcare, the environment and combating discrimination are the main causes we are supporting.

Les Amis des malades de l’Hôpital Cochin

We helped to fund a 3D printer project for the production of medical equipment and consumables during the Covid-19 crisis.

Initiatives

Taking a stand

Andera Partners is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the iC20 (2020 Carbon Initiative) by France Invest. We have documented this commitment in our Responsible Investment Charter signed by all employees.

  • Signatory of France Invest's IC20

    In 2019, Andera Partners joined the collective initiative launched by France Invest and co-signed by other French private equity firms. Andera Partners is aware of its responsibility as a shareholder in terms of ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) issues and recognises the growing importance of these themes both now and looking to the future. Our management company wishes to play its full part in the iC20 and take tangible steps to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the companies in its portfolio.

    The signatories therefore undertake to:
    – Recognise that climate change will have effects on the economy that represent risks and opportunities for companies
    – Get involved to contribute, at their own level, to the COP21 objective of limiting global warming to two degrees Celcius
    – Contribute to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of companies in their portfolio and ensure sustainable performance.

    In September 2018, Andera Partners established an ESG Committee in its investment, back office and middle office teams to implement best environmental, social and governance practices across the asset management company. Such practices include phasing out the use of plastic, conducting a carbon audit and initiating sponsorship projects.
