A pragmatic approach to ESG standards.

Renaissance pursues a dual objective with its investments: a stable financial return and management which contributes to a sustainable socio-economic environment for the benefit of all stakeholders.

A sustainable approach.

Our open ‘Evergreen’ structure enables us to ensure the sustainable development of our investments
and the strict application of ESG (Environmental Social Governance) standards.

A concrete and quantifiable methodology at the heart of Renaissance’s ESG commitment

Our ESG rating tool, developed in partnership with the Renaissance Foundation according to ISO-26000 standards, allows us to evaluate the “E”, “S” and “G” components of each portfolio company in a quantifiable and systematic way. Using this tool, Renaissance implements concrete measures to improve ESG performance and provides complete ESG reporting, including an assessment of the carbon footprint to its investors.
