Le café économique de Bercy – Towards a greener financial system: what are the challenges for professionals and citizens?

The Action Plan for the Growth and Transformation of Enterprises (known as the “PACTE Law”) introduces advances in sustainable finance into legislation: the law will oblige all life insurance policies, the preferred investment of the French, to now offer subscribers to invest either in solidarity funds, energy transition funds or responsible investment funds.

In order to take a new step towards greening the financial system, the players in the Paris financial Center will promote, from 2020, the marketing of green and socially responsible financial products to the public, within the framework provided by the PACTE law. Indicators will be defined, within the framework of a new market observatory, to report on the achievements of financial actors in favour of the climate.

In addition, a majority of French people are increasingly sensitive to the need to take environmental issues into account in savings products*.

This “Cafe Economique” will be an opportunity to exchange views on these topics with ministerial experts and other stakeholders in the green finance ecosystem in the private sector.
