- Report on activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
Bruno de Pampelonne, the Chairman of Tikehau IM, said: « Many years ago, Tikehau IM made a commitment to responsible investment and community action. The company’s growth and the recent diversification of its activities naturally led us to sign the PRI, which allows Tikehau IM to gain a better understanding of the ESG issues in our activity. »
Christian de Labriffe, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Salvepar, said: « By signing the PRI, Salvepar confirms its long-term commitment to integrate social, societal and environmental issues into its investment strategy.
