Environnement, social & gouvernance
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.
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.
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.
