responsibility

 

Environnement, social & gouvernance

A responsible investor.

FFP is convinced that taking into account environmental, social and governance factors is a source of opportunities, a vector for the efficiency and performance of its portfolio. As a committed shareholder, FFP encourages its direct and indirect shareholdings to progress in the areas of governance, social/societal and environmental issues.

FFP's long-term commitment makes it a specific investor. Each investment decision is made with a long-term approach, without any restriction on the rotation of the funds invested, with an average holding period of more than 10 years for the companies in the portfolio. Dialogue with management teams, support for new acquisitions and industrial investments and innovation are part of FFP's long-term commitments with the objective of revealing the value creation potential of each investment.

Integrate ESG into the investment life cycle.

For each investment project, the relevant ESG factors are analysed by the teams. This data is used in the same way as financial information to inform investment decisions and reduce non-financial risks.

Impact investing.

As a responsible investor, FFP has been invested since 2015 in several impact funds, which combine a positive impact on society and the environment with sustainable financial performance. FFP has thus established solid long-term partnerships with 3 management teams: Alter Equity, Amboise Partners and Impact Partenaires.

Structure the ESG approach at FFP.

 

The Responsible Investment Charter

In order to formalize the principles set out above, FFP relies on a Responsible Investor Charter. This charter embodies the company's values and constitutes the reference framework for the daily practices and actions of all employees and managers.

Read the Charter

The ESG steering committee

FFP has set up its own ESG operational steering committee. This committee brings together representatives of all the company's functions. It coordinates FFP's ESG approach, integrates environmental, social and governance criteria into its business and professions, and disseminates and shares best practices internally.

The CSR questionnaires

In order to monitor the evolution of the CSR indicators of its investments, FFP requires its investments to answer a CSR questionnaire every year. A presentation of the main CSR issues and highlights is presented in the FFP Registration Document.
