Taking the lead in expanding the reach of sustainable finance
Societe Generale awarded by Global Finance
Societe Generale has just won the Global Award for Outstanding Leadership in Sustainable Finance on top of many others*, including for sustainability-linked loans and for Sustainable Financing in Emerging Markets, as well as Outstanding leadership in sustainable finance in Africa, as announced by Global Finance magazine. A great recognition by the bank’s clients which would not have been possible without the full commitment of all the teams.
Actively committed to environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters for over twenty years, it enables the Group to build profound levels of experience and expertise across the entire sustainable finance value chain. With one of the broadest and most flexible offerings, Societe Generale provides its clients with financing and investment solutions that help address their needs and contribute towards building a sustainable future.
For Hacina Py, Head of Impact Finance Solutions at Societe Generale, the sector will still be growing: “All regions should see increased ESG activity, to either finance the energy transition; build social infrastructures where huge needs arose during the Covid-19 crisis; fight against the dramatic loss of biodiversity; or finance SDGs [the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals] in general, especially in emerging countries.”
All around the world, experts working in the Societe Generale’s various business activities are developing innovative and responsible solutions that meet the three major issues of climate change, sustainable development in Africa and social progress.
This is a commercial goal that supports action favoring initiatives that generate a positive impact on sustainable development for the economy and society. This approach has been developed in the spirit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
