    Céréa Partenaire commits to the fight against climate change and joins the Climate Initiative 2020

    Céréa Partenaire, the Investor-Partner of Agrobusiness companies, has committed to the fight against climate change by becoming a signatory of the Climate Initiative 2020. This initiative is the fight collective commitment of the French private equity industry in favor of responsible and transparent management of greenhouse gas emissions of portfolio companies.

    By joining this initiative, Céréa Partenaire is teaming up with its private equity peers in a long-term commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of the companies it invests in.

    With Agrobusiness at the center of its investment activity, Céréa Partenaire has always been attentive and vigilant to the environmental impact of the companies it supports. Indirectly, Céréa Partenaire contributes to public health and well-being, which is why quality, food safety, respecting consumers and environmental impact have always been part of its investment criteria.

    This context led Céréa Partenaire to commit to a structured ESG approach as early as 2010, becoming a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI) and participating in the creation of the ESG Commission of France Invest (formerly the Sustainable Development Club).

    Céréa Partenaire is convinced that being a responsible investor is part of the DNA of its activity and that limiting environmental impact is also a means to reinforce the long-term financial performance of its investments.
