Our management and ESG

Our responsible investment process involves the integration of ESG criteria in all of our equity funds.

Investment in high-quality companies, the foundation of our Quality and Value management process, is inextricably linked to consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

Clartan Associés has adopted ESG and shareholder engagement policies for the compartments of the Clartan SICAV. In particular, the Clartan Ethos compartment is dedicated to the ESG theme and favours companies whose activities have a positive impact.
