Activa ramps up ESG mission with analyst’s promotion

Paris-based private equity firm Activa Capital has promoted an analyst in a move reflecting its higher focus on responsible investment.

Emma France becomes an associate for environmental, social and governance (ESG), meaning she is responsible for strengthening ESG processes at Activa and in its portfolio companies.

The role also covers digital transformation at the firm.

The promotion is another indication of the rising importance of ESG in private equity. Recent research found private equity clients expect their fund providers to focus more on responsible investing in the next two years.

France joined Activa in 2017 as an ESG analyst in charge of creating ESG roadmaps for Activa Capital’s portfolio companies.

Activa Capital manages over €500 million of private equity funds on behalf of a range of institutional investors.
