This 10th edition was a chance to reaffirm the commitments of the Caisse des Dépôts group in the financing of the Energy transition (EET) according to Virginie Chapron du Jeu, Group Finance Director and Chairwoman of Novethic, and to shine a spotlight on the impetus given by Europe to sustainable finance. This is embodied by the Group of high level experts in sustainable finance (HLEG) formed by the European Commission in December 2016, in which two representatives from the group are participating: Anne-Catherine Husson-Traore, Chief Executive Officer of Novethic as a member and Pierre Ducret, Chairman of I4CE as an observer.
Both a media and research centre, Novethic is the expert subsidiary of the Caisse des Dépôts group in the responsible economy and sustainable finance. It trains the administrators, decision makers and managers from financial institutions and businesses on these issues.
