As I was personally involved in UNEP FI since 10 years with my previous position. I’ll be particularly glad to continue to act and share with the GSC members, especially through the development of transversal projects with the differents industries. I’ll also be in capacity to dedicate the necessary time to serve and represent UNEP FI properly.

I propose to work particularly in raising awareness about the role of  investors in creating positive impact using ESG indicators and translation tools between different stakeholders. To develop recommendations, defining how to implement ESG investment in practice, including case studies from investors and therefore, contributing to capacity and skills building. and finally, to promote thought leadership and incentivize collaboration between, banks, responsible investors and insurance companies.


Involved in sustainability investment and especially real estate since 20 years. My career is dedicated to sutainability integration into building projects and financial tolls dedicated to real estate. I worked for the “Caisse des depots” group in charge of the real estate sustainable development policy. My role was the integration of ESG criteria in the business of different subsidiaries form REIT as ICADE ( 9 billions € of asset) to social housing as SNI ( 350 000 flats) and also non direct investment through funds.
