Novethic and Eurosif: convergence and divergence
December 11, 2012

Novethic – France largest and leading SRI and CSR research institute and media expert on sustainable development, operating as an independent non-profit organisation and subsidiary of the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations – joined the FRI (Le Forum pour l’Investissement Responsable) in the summer of 2011. FRI claimed that the Novethic label should automatically grant access to the Transparency label of Eurosif as the Novethic label fosters the highest requirements in terms of quality and credibility. In the light of the broader European review of its own Transparency Code, Eurosif instructed Forum ETHIBEL to execute a due diligence report in order to assess the assumptions of the FIR. Our conclusions, listing the convergences and divergences between Eurosif and Novethic, were finalised and submitted to Eurosif’s Board of Directors in April 2012.
