Pierre Ducret and Sylvie Lemmet present their report on the French Strategy for Green Finance.
Green finance has expanded rapidly since 2015 but much remains to be done to make capital flows consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
France can continue to play a pioneering role to promote the energy and ecological transition, and to support Paris’s role as a financial centre.
The task force is putting forward recommendations along four axes for a French strategy to foster green finance.
Pierre Ducret is Special Advisor for climate change & COP21 at Caisse des Dépôts Group. Until March 2015 he was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CDC Climat, a Caisse des Dépôts subsidiary dedicated to supporting the transition to an ecological and low-carbon economy.
Pierre Ducret started his career as executive manager in local development at the Caisse des Dépôts Group. Over 15 years, he contributed to regional planning and developed initiatives for local authorities.
