On its website Natixis states: 'aware of its social and environmental
responsibility, Natixis has a sustainable development policy aiming at
reducing its impact on the environment and being part of corporate
social progress and open to civil society. This policy concerns both our
businesses and our day-to-day behavior, with a growing commitment
of Natixis' employees.' This policy is not publicly available on its website though.
In March 2009, as part of the responsible management of its activities and their consequences, Natixis adopted a policy to exclude all financing and investment in companies involved in the manufacturing, storage and trade of land mines and cluster bombs. This policy applies to the financing of these companies, to proprietary investment, to third-party asset management by Natixis Asset Management, which has also launched a customer awareness approach.
Based on Les Amis de la Terre main reports on private finance, this website presents profiles of French financial institutions and aims at awareness of social and environmental impacts. It includes a web calculator, for individuals, to evaluate the carbon weight of their savings, and to show how to reduce it by changing their choice of banks and savings products.
