FINANCE FOR TOMORROW
Convince, Mobilize, engage for
a more sustainable finance.
Committed for the future
Finance for Tomorrow therefore brings together all private, public and institutional players in the Paris financial centre who wish to commit themselves to a finance that focuses on a sustainable future and combines long-term investment with consideration of environmental and social challenges
Massively redirecting capital flows towards the energy transition is now a priority challenge, and Finance for Tomorrow has set itself the "Shift the trillions" guiding principle to scale up the change in scale of green and sustainable finance already underway.
- Differentiate the Paris Financial Center (make the Paris Financial Center an expert in sustainable finance at the international level).
- Consolidate synergies between actors, especially between the public and private sectors.
- Promote the Paris Financial Center on a European and international scale (by creating a brand, with Finance for Tomorrow).
At the end of 2015, the adoption of the Paris Agreement and the UN's sustainable development goals highlighted the enormous challenge of financing the energy transition.The Green & Sustainable Finance was launched in 2016 by Paris EUROPLACE, which supports and develops the French financial industry and promotes Paris as an international financial centre. In June 2017, the Initiative was renamed "Finance for Tomorrow" and became a branch of Paris Europlace. In May 2019, it had more than 65 members.
Nominated by the President of Paris EUROPLACE on the proposal of the Board of Finance for Tomorrow for a 2-year term, renewable once, our President Thierry Déau is seconded by two Vice-Presidents : Jean-Jacques Barbéris and Bernard Descreux. He participates in the governance committees of Paris EUROPLACE and the Place Committee.
