CANDRIAM is a subsidiary of New York Life, a Fortune 100© company. With more than $590 billion in assets under management (AUM), New York Life Investments is one of the largest asset managers in the world.
In the wake of a transition to sustainable finance, Candriam asked Hedgehog Company to show how sustainability can be integrated in decision-making throughout the investment cycle
Hedgehog Company developed a scalable method to analyse companies on their environmental footprint, based on the phase of the investment cycle. From a quick screening to a full organisational life cycle assessment (LCA).
This method ensures portfolio managers receive cost-efficient but detailed sustainability information including scope 1, 2 and 3 impacts.
Compared to normal ESG ratings, the received information is realistic, and not based on country-sector proxy data of companies. It allows for active ownership and the divestment of portfolio companies with a massively improved sustainable performance.
The basis of our method is the same, however any financial portfolio will need a tailor-made approach for the optimal results. Get in touch with our team to explore the opportunities for your financial portfolio.
