Iceberg Data Lab & I Care & Consult have been selected by a Consortium of Investors composed of Axa Investment Managers, BNP Paris Asset Management, Sycomore Asset Management and Mirova to develop a tool for investors to measure the biodiversity impact of their investments. This selection was the final step of a structured, highly competitive tender process initiated by a Call for Expression of Interest (“CEI”), early this year.
This CEI was supported by an Investor Statement on the need for biodiversity impact metrics, which gathered more than 30 signatures from leading institutional investors around the world, representing over EUR 6.000 bn in assets under management. The Statement demonstrates that there is currently an unmet demand for quality research to assist investors in responding to the biodiversity crisis.
Iceberg Data Lab partnered with I Care & Consult to respond to that Call for Expression of Interest to expand its biodiversity impact assessment solution, the Corporate Biodiversity Footprint. This database aims at quantifying the biodiversity impact of the constituents of financial portfolios. This tool will enable Financial institutions integrating that impact into their investment strategy. Iceberg Data Lab is an independent Fintech developing science-based environmental data solutions.
“We unanimously decided to select the innovative approach that combines the data modelling skills of Iceberg Data Lab and the in-depth expertise on biodiversity and methodology build-up of I Care & Consult”
Said Julien Foll of AXA IM, Robert-Alexandre Poujade of BNPP AM, Sarah Maillard of Mirova and Jean-Guillaume Péladan of Sycomore AM.
“We would like to thank the Consortium of Investors for this major initiative that will accelerate biodiversity impact assessment in the finance sector. We are honoured that our innovative solution, the “Corporate Biodiversity Footprint”, has been selected in this highly competitive international process. We look forward to cooperating with the Investor Consortium and with all financial actors interested in their strategy to preserve and restore Natural Capital"
Said Matthieu Maurin, CEO of Iceberg Data Lab and Guillaume Neveux, CEO of I Care & Consult.
