Olympism and public interest: as might be expected these are shared values!
Excellence, Friendship, Respect: today the three key principles of Olympism inherently reflect the public interest values Caisse des Dépôts has upheld for the past 200 years. But Olympism goes far beyond the scope of the Olympics by revealing the excellence of sportsmen and women as well as of individuals, businesses and local areas.

The Olympic Games and Caisse des Dépôts go way back
"Citius, altius, fortius" (Faster, Higher, Stronger): the official motto of the Olympic Games was chosen by Pierre de Coubertin, in 1894, when he decided to revive the Olympics with a modern version. But the phrase was actually coined three years earlier on the current Caisse des Dépôts site in Arcueil, when the building was still a school. It's the first historical link between the public body and the Olympic Games.
A smart, sustainable and inclusive Olympic and Paralympic Village... during the 2024 Olympics... and beyond for our heritage
As an Official Partner of the Paris 2024 bid, the Caisse des Dépôts group wants to be a proactive contributor so our teams have designed a proposal for a smart Olympic and Paralympic Village for Paris 2024.
