Research and White Paper


  • In the past, some investors felt impact was at the expense of returns. To the contrary, as environmental impact investing feeds the growth of companies that solve sustainability challenges, investment returns are actually tied to impact.
  • Acceleration capital investing is an efficient way to back companies which have a positive impact on the environment: in the acceleration phase, companies are established but still growing fast and few are expected to fail. This maximises the impact and financial return of investors’ capital.
  • As a pure-play ESG and impact investment firm, Mirova is uniquely positioned to accurately research and qualify potential investments which have positive impact and strong return potential.
