1966: Environment

Since 1966, Caisse des Dépôts has been interested in the environment, via the creation of Société Forestière (Forestry Company).

Since 2000, it has been producing various studies on climate research (CDC Climat and Novethic). In 2005, Caisse des Dépôts was behind the creation of the European Carbon Fund (FCE) and the implementation of the national register of greenhouse gas emission quotas.

In 2008, Caisse des Dépôts put in place a “compensation fund for biodiversity” via its specialised subsidiary CDC Biodiversité.

Nowadays, Caisse des Dépôts is among the first investors in French renewable energy and brings expert contribution to the public debate by relying on researchers and experts. Moreover, it supports the development of alternative transport solutions, respectful of the environment.

A key stakeholder of COP21 in 2015, the Group’s aim is to commit to a major drive towards a more temperate economic model in terms of energy and natural resources consumption.
