Action on three fronts for the Caisse des Dépôts group:
  • sustainability of civilian airport businesses via the updating of infrastructure;
  • development of the International Gastronomy City of Dijon. This project, which will extend over 20,000m² on the site of the former general hospital, aims to be a flagship for French gastronomy throughout the world. Caisse des Dépôts will study the possibility of investing in such a project developed in this city. The total amount of the investment is €200mn;
  • development of tools dedicated to the financing of companies. The Dévemploi 21 mutual fund made up of industrial conversion funds, invested in by the French State (the Restructuring Defence Fund - FRED), will feed into the new fund of interest-free Initiative Côte d’Or Growth Loans, promoted and supported by Caisse des Dépôts with €300,000.
