September 2018 marks the 3rd anniversary of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that was agreed upon in September 2015 by 193 countries, and has since proven to be a rallying point for governments, businesses and investors. It applies for governments abroad and domestically and for companies inwardly and outwardly. Under conditions we tried to clarify, the 2030 Agenda could serve as unifying framework to tie together the sustainability disparate actions of governments, corporations, entrepreneurs, investors, and NGOs.
On this occasion, Natixis Green & Sustainable Hub’s Center of Expertise releases its first flagship report titled “Solving the Sustainable Development Goals Rubik’s Cube – An impact-based toolkit for issuers and investors”. This publication aims first at spurring methodical innovation. It identifies and proposes actionable tools for embedding SDG footprint assessment into corporate strategy and funding or portfolio management, and avoid evidence less contribution claims.
"The Green & Sustainable Hub is a true cross-asset, expert and operational team working alongside CIB business lines, and our “Green Captain” network, to provide our investor and issuer clients worldwide with a broad cross-business spectrum of green and sustainable finance solutions and expertise.
We co-originate and structure tailor made green & sustainable financing solutions (through bonds, credit or securitizations), engineer and develop investment products & solutions (based on equity, rates and credit), and provide clients with dedicated advisory services, SRI/ESG market intelligence as well as a dedicated center of expertise focused on forward looking innovations when it comes to tools, instruments and trend detection."
