ESG House of the Year
The International Financing Review (IFR), Thomson Reuters' benchmark financial magazine rewarded Crédit Agricole CIB for its commitment to green finance and social finance for the 5th consecutive year with the ESG House of the Year 2019 award.
In its dedicated article, IFR commented: “Strengthening a leading league table position in the increasingly competitive world of sustainable finance was no mean feat in 2019. Banks fell over themselves to declare their green credentials as the world heated up, but for continuing to bring calm and thoughtful leadership to a rapidly evolving and sometimes chaotic market, Crédit Agricole CIB is IFR’s ESG House of the Year.”
“We are immensely proud of this honour, as it underlines the quality of our teamwork.”
Tanguy Claquin, Head of Sustainable Banking
The Bank was also awarded the Asia ESG House of the Year 2019 for its sustainable transactions in Asia Pacific.
