AXA Investment Managers (AXA IM), Natixis IM and its affiliate Mirova, Sienna Investment Managers and Solactive today announce they have entered into an agreement with Iceberg Data Lab to participate in its series A fund raise.

Following this minority investment, each investor will also be represented on Iceberg Data Lab’s Supervisory Board in order to support the development of the company.

Iceberg Data Lab has developed methodologies to calculate the various environmental impacts of issuers and assets throughout their value chain (supply chain to end use).

“Curbing climate change and preserving the planet’s biodiversity and ecosystems are urgent priorities and having metrics and tools to measure the impact of investments on the environment is crucial. We are delighted to partner with Iceberg Data Lab as we believe they have developed a distinctive proposition to collect, analyse and report environmental data.

Through this partnership, we aim to bring our experience and knowledge of the financial markets, with the ambition of contributing to the emergence and adoption of European standards in areas such as biodiversity.”, said Marco Morelli, Executive Chairman at AXA IM, Tim Ryan, CEO of Natixis IM, Pedro-Antonio Arias, CEO at Sienna Investment Managers and Steffen Scheuble, CEO at Solactive.
