Social inclusion is one of the greatest challenges of our times. As an asset manager, Eurazeo believes it can accelerate the transition toward a fairer, more equal and cohesive society, et has defined three levers to do so.
Investing in a more inclusive economy
Eurazeo invests in companies that contribute to enhancing social inclusion through their business, products or services. Eurazeo places particular emphasis on the healthcare sector, which is key in improving social well-being and economic development.
The Group finances companies that undertake reindustrialization, relocation, R&D and innovation, telemedicine, or digitalization projects in the healthcare sector.
This is illustrated by Eurazeo’s portfolio companies, and more specifically its dedicated funds: Nov Santé Actions Non Cotées, Kurma Biofund III, Kurma Diagnostics II and Kurma Growth Opportunities IV.
Promote diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)
Eurazeo encourages the implementation of more inclusive and fairer practices within the Group and the companies in its portfolio. Its efforts focus on (but are not limited to) three priority areas: fostering all types of diversity, broadening access to healthcare coverage and promoting greater sharing of the value created.
The Group has set a number of quantitative objectives to pursue through 2030 and defined specific guidelines in its HR processes. Eurazeo is committed to ensuring that all its employees benefit from health, life and disability insurance and are eligible to at least one profit-sharing scheme. All the measures are detailed in the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Charter and Policy.
Eurazeo encourages its portfolio companies to develop and strengthen their DEI practices, including through the 20 key ESG actions known as the “O+ Essentials”.
Champion equal opportunities through philanthropy
Eurazeo supports non-profit organisations that foster youth protection and education. This includes combating poverty and exclusion, defending human rights and furthering medical research. Moreover, in response to emergency situations, Eurazeo mobilizes funds to support organizations operating in the field and working with vulnerable groups.
