SRI and CSR, key priorities for the Paris financial marketplace

French market participants are highly committed to these areas and have at their disposal leading-edge expertise and best practices as well as sophisticated legislation. Many actions are undertaken each year by Paris EUROPLACE: organisation of conferences, publication of reports, etc.

The French SRI market is one of the European leaders and CSR practices among French companies are often very advanced in all of the ESG criteria (Environment, Social, Governance).

In order to establish the priorities and recommendations to be implemented, Paris EUROPLACE carried out a survey in January 2015 which included 69 issuers and investors. The goal was to find out about their expectations and practices in the SRI & CSR areas.

FOCUS ON SRI WEEK

The French SIF (Sustainable Investment Forum) organizes the responsible finance Week to help raise awareness among the general public about all forms of responsible finance : crowdfunding aiming to have positive societal impact, solidarity finance, Socially Responsible Investment, etc.

The Week, under the aegis of the Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy and the Ministry of Finance and Public Accounts, is held between mid-September and mid-October and gets proactive investors involved with the campaign "Exigez l'ISR !" (Demand SRI!)
