Yves CENSI, Senior Partner at Mascaret (formerly Dentsu Consulting) introduced, on July 6th, the panelists called to debate within the framework of the seminar of decision makers in #Banking – #Finance – #Insurance. This seminar organized by the independent think tank Ambitious Finance by AILANCY, welcomed many talents from our partners Finance for Tomorrow, WBCSD – World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Novethic and RSEDATANEWS.
The seminar was held in several stages at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, each one addressing different aspects of sustainable economics and finance. Yves Censi chaired the very first Ambitious Finance round table, the theme of which was “Sustainable finance: between accelerating challenges for the financial sphere and cautious action by states”. He was joined by our collaborators Alexandre Malafaye – Founder of Synopia, Jean Boissinot – Secretary General of the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) and Arnaud Dumas, Editor of Novethic Essentiel.
Why sustainable finance? The financial sector plays a driving role in the functioning of the economy: financial flows allow the collection of available capital held by economic agents with a capacity to #finance (generally household savings) to make it available to agents with a need. The various financial #actors can therefore actively participate in a better orientation of #capital towards the financing of investments that have a positive impact on society in the medium and long term. In other words, sustainable finance can be an interesting solution to meet the major #ecological and #economic challenges of our time!
