The second intermediate housing fund (FLI II), managed by AMPERE Gestion, has obtained the French Socially Responsible Investment Label (SRI)

This provides due recognition of the responsible investment strategy adopted by our subsidiary specialised in property portfolio management.

AMPERE Gestion has been awarded the SRI label for FLI II based on the concrete measured environmental, social and governance commitments it has made. These actions are fully aligned with CDC Habitat’s ecological transition and social utility strategy.

  • Environment: a selection of new buildings with excellent energy and environmental performance that is ahead of regulations, and optimal energy consumption and water management processes;
  • Social: matching type of housing with the local needs of residents (i.e., affordable rents in the most supply-constrained areas, rigorous technical specifications, etc.) and systematic inclusion of local stakeholders in building projects (tenants, associations, etc.);
  • Governance: deployment of responsible procurement practices with service providers and suppliers.

The SRI label was created by the French Finance Ministry and extended to the real estate sector in late October 2020. It represents a continuation of the strategies adopted by AMPERE Gestion and CDC Habitat.  For the purposes of obtaining the label, FLI II was audited by Ernst & Young.

As Vincent Mahé, Chairman of AMPERE Gestion explains, “the creation of this SRI label for the real estate sector is an important step forward as it provides investors and managers with a solid benchmark that is recognised by the public authorities. For AMPERE Gestion – which has often been ahead of the curve in terms of responsible investment – obtaining this label for FLI II was a natural choice and we are delighted to be able to display this new label.”
