ecological office building

Our Group is backed up by a meaningful investment policy that coordinates performance and risk management over the long term.  An approach that enables us to promote innovation and expertise, encourage best practice development and sharing and participate in the value creation of our markets with our customers and members.

Investment Director at Relyens

“As a Company with a Mission and an investor, convinced of the positive impact of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) issues, we wish to align our economic interests with our raison d’être while ensuring the financial but also extra-financial performance of our investment portfolio. As a mutualist group, we also have a responsibility to support all our stakeholders, and in particular our customers, healthcare professionals and local authorities in Europe, in the transition of their environmental and societal models. We have therefore chosen to affirm and strengthen our socially responsible investment strategy, to anchor the notion of “sustainability” and “responsibility” in all our asset classes. This is just the beginning of a long-term approach that will enable us both to sustainably improve the Group’s impact on its environment and to encourage more responsible practices within our ecosystems.”
