ESG Commitment




According to a press release yesterday, Eurazeo announces the launch of O+, the new step of its ambitious environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy, which aims to drive positive change in society by working toward shared and sustainable prosperity.

For nearly 15 years, Eurazeo has been at the forefront of responsible investment in private equity and is constantly seeking to integrate the highest ESG standards, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

O+ has two main pillars:

  • achieving zero net carbon by 2040 at the latest
  • playing a role in bridging the widening social gaps.

Accelerating the transition to a low carbon economy and committing to zero net carbon across the Group by 2040

Eurazeo, as the first company in its sector to set such an ambitious goal, looks to achieve zero net carbon by 2040, in alignment with the Science Based Targets initiative.

To achieve optimum performance in a low carbon economy, Eurazeo will focus on three objectives:

Reducing carbon risk and exposure to carbon cost

  • Implementing decarbonisation plans in accordance with the criteria of the Science Based Targets initiative for Eurazeo, as well as its portfolio companies, in order to achieve net zero emissions by 2040 at the latest.
  • Setting an exclusion policy, which precludes investments in carbon-intensive or counter to the UN Sustainable Development Goals assets

Integrating carbon measurement at each stage of the investment cycle

  • Considering carbon valuation in all investment business plans.
  • Measuring the carbon performance of all investment strategies.

Investing in the low carbon economy

  • Increasing Eurazeo’s investments in assets that offer significant potential to reduce carbon emissions.
  • Developing innovative investment strategies to finance “positive solutions”, including green and depollution-tech food solutions.
