A responsible investment approach, in line with our DNA

Driven by structuring values that have been shared by all our stakeholders for more than 50 years, we are convinced that integrating ESG issues into our internal practices, our investment decisions as well as our portfolio management bolsters sustainable value creation.

With this in mind, our ESG policy, formalized in a founding document, aims to encourage the alignment of IDI's values with sustainable development issues and thus ensure consistency between who we are and how we invest.

On the one hand, it involves the definition of an internal roadmap with concrete objectives that allow us to evaluate our ESG performance over time. This ambition has been partly achieved through the creation of an ESG committee at the Supervisory Board level and by setting up an internal working group in charge of drawing up and presenting IDI's main ESG guidelines on an annual basis.

On the other hand, it implies to go beyond the trustworthy relationships already established with our investments by becoming a partner in their long-lasting responsible transformation. In concrete terms, we systematically consider ESG issues at the beginnning of the investment phase, monitor their performance using specific indicators, and define together improvement avenues adapted to their profile.

As part of its commitment to setting an example, IDI has become a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
