Social & Sustainable Finance Chair – Home
Created in 1818, the Caisses d´Epargne are cooperative banks owned by their member customers. The Caisses d´Epargne are banks firmly rooted in their territories and whose mission is to direct the savings placed by customers towards the financing of responsible projects and companies. The corporate social responsibility (CSR) of the Caisses d’Epargne in general, and of the Caisse d’Epargne Languedoc-Roussillon (CELR) in particular, is a concrete commitment to businesses, local economy, regional development, professionals, individuals, as well as societal and technological innovation, to promote sustainable development. It is in this spirit that the CELR has been working with the Microfinance in Developed Countries Chair since 2018. As part of the Social & Sustainable Finance Chair, the funding provided by the CELR enables us to develop teaching and research projects, and events to promote social and sustainable finance.
