Supporting our clients in their sustainable growth strategy
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges our world must face today. Our mission: expedite our clients’ ecological transition as a proponent of green finance.
As a founding bank of the Principles for responsible banking, Natixis is proud to support the Collective Commitment to Climate Action initiative.
We are committed to implementing new solutions to more closely align our financial portfolio with The Paris Agreement on climate change.
THE GREEN WEIGHTING FACTOR, our innovative tool at the service of ecological evolution
Natixis becomes the first bank to actively manage its balance sheet’s climate impact by means of its Green Weighting Factor . This new capital allocation tool classes each financial activity in terms of its impact on the climate with a grading from “brown” to “green”. A gradual system of bonus-malus is assigned to the most “green” financial activity (up to 50%) and to the most “brown” financial activity (up to 24%).
This approach in aid of the transition towards a low-carbon economy is carried out together with all of our clients in order to better support them in their sustainable investment strategy.
The Green Weighting Factor is a replicable tool that could be adopted by other banks committed to transitioning their portfolios
