Our governance

i4ce – Institute for Climate Economics is a registered non-for-profit organisation, founded by the Caisse des Dépôts and the French Development Agency,(AFD).

It is administered by a Board, composed of eleven members and chaired by Jean Pisani-Ferry.

Renewing the Board members

I4CE’s Board is currently going through a renewal. Nathalie Tubiana, Director of Finance and Sustainable Policy for the Caisse des Dépôts group, is replacing Virginie Chapron-du Jeu. Jean Boissinot, Deputy Director of Financial Stability at the Banque de France and head of the NGFS (Network for Greening the Financial System) secretariat, is succeeding Nathalie Aufauvre. Mohammed Hafnaoui, from the Caisse de Dépôt et de Gestion du Maroc, is also among the directors who have left I4CE, and we would like to thank them all. Their advice and criticism, always constructive, have enabled I4CE to grow into a think tank recognised for its expertise and its contribution to the public policy debate.


I4CE has also begun to bring qualified individuals onto its Board. Stephane Hallegatte, Senior Advisor on Climate Change at the World Bank, Morgan Després, Executive Director in charge of International Climate Finance and Economics at the European Climate Foundation, Frauke Thies, Executive Director at Agora Energiewende, and Heather Grabbe, Senior fellow at Bruegel, have joined our board. Their experience will enable the Institute to pursue its development abroad and continue to push the boundaries of economic expertise on the environmental transition.
