Amundi takes part in 3rd Climate Finance Day

On 11 December, the Climate Finance Day, organised by Finance for Tomorrow, Paris EUROPLACE and the French Ministry of Economy and Finance, brought together the main players of the finance industry to discuss initiatives to fund the energy transition and the fight against global warming.

As a sponsor of the event, Amundi took part in the working group on the renewal of public-private cooperation for the development of innovative initiatives for a low-carbon economy. Amundi’s CIO Pascal Blanqué made a speech to introduce the strategic partnership forged between Amundi and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), aimed at funding the energy transition through their joint two billion dollars green bond fund intended for emerging countries.

This event was held in the context of the “One Planet Summit” organised by French President Macron on December 12 to celebrate the 2-year anniversary of the Paris Agreement. It gathered policymakers from around the globe in order to maintain the fight against climate change at center stage and consolidate the ambition to position Paris as the capital of green finance.
