Voluntary initiativesNatixis has committed itself to the following voluntary standards:
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.

Climate breakthrough as string of banks dump coal financing
In May, Bank of America and Crédit Agricole became the first major banks to announce plans to stop financing coal mining. These announcements marked a hugely significant win and a breakthrough moment in the fight to end financing for the coal industry. The second half of 2015, in the run-up to the make-or-break UN climate change conference in Paris, then saw important coal finance restrictions being announced by institutions including Citi, Natixis, Goldman Sachs, Société Générale, BNP Paribas, ING and RBS. All these moves are captured here – significantly, a number of banks have chosen not just to get out of coal mining, but are also extending into ending their support for coal power.
