    Main EU files targeted

    Philippe Zaouati, Mirova CEO, has been a member of the High Level Expert Group on sustainable finance. Identified areas of interest within the work of the HLEG are: support the development of long-term oriented finance for sustainability, transparency and ESG disclosure for corporates and for the financial sector (TCFD, article 173), development of sustainable finance for retail investors with reliable and high quality standards and labels, development of blended finance for sustainable development. Mr.Zaouati was supported by Ms Laurene Chenevat, Policy and advocacy officer, during the HLEG. They both keep following the development of the EU action plan on sustainable finance although less actively than during 2017. Ms Chenevat is a member of the Ecolabel stakeholder group for financial products, bringing Mirova's feedback and experience of the French Greenfin label so as to help make the EU label both ambitious and realistic.
    Since the end of 2018, Manuel Coeslier, portfolio manager at Mirova, has been a member of the Technical Expert Group (TEG) set up by the EU Commission in order to define some methodological aspects of the EU regulatory package; he is an expert for carbon benchmarks. He has been one of the main drafters of the TEG's public report on climate benchmarks, released in September 2019.

    In 2020, Mirova's advocacy activities at the EU level have focused on:
    - final contributions of Manuel Coeslier to the TEG's works on climate benchmarks;
    - answers to public consultations launched by the EU Commission;
    - contribution to the work of the working groups associated with the Joint Research Center on the elaboration of an EU ecolabel for financial products;

    In 2021, Mirova's advocacy activities have focused on two topics:
    - the EU ecolabel, for which Mirova exposed its experience and commitment, and made concrete proposals;
    - the implementation of SFDR, supporting the text and the development of articles 6, 8 and 9 in proper labels or standards, with appropriate criteria and verification systems;
    - participation to the works of EUROSIF at policy level.
    Mirova also supported initiatives related to the integration of sustainability criteria in corporate executive directors remunerations.
