Energy & Environmental Transition | Edmond de Rothschild

ENERGY &

ENVIRONMENTAL

TRANSITION

Our commitment to the energy transition is at the crossroads between our proactive vision of wealth, our determination to be involved in the changes that will shape the world of tomorrow, and our definition of committed performance that goes beyond purely financial concerns.

By committing to a sustainable energy transition, we are bringing our business and banking expertise to a sector that needs the funding to act in a responsible manner.

Our involvement in the energy transition enables us to offer our clients the best possible economic, social and environmental performance levels.

A Long-STANDING COMMITMENT

We have always been a catalyst for change. Pioneers in the energy transition from coal to oil and in infrastructure development, we have always sought new solutions to answer energy resource issues.

1845

James de Rothschild founds the railway company Compagnie des chemins de fer du Nord in northern France, contributing to the modernisation of French society.

1886

Alphonse de Rothschild supports the energy transition from coal to oil by creating the Société commerciale de Naphte Caspienne et de la Mer Noire.

Edmond de Rothschild launches one of the first Responsible Investment strategies on the European credit market.

The world will require four times as much renewable energy if it is to respect the COP objective of a below 2°C increase in global warming.

€8 Billion

managed using responsible investment strategies

We are contributing to



14 of the 17

U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.

BY DEVELOPING GREENER INFRASTRUCTURE

We estimate green infrastructure needs over €150 billion to bring European cities and industries into compliance with ecological standards. Our initiatives are aimed at contributing to this financing.

A PRIVATE EQUITY INVESTMENT STRATEGY

dedicated to European environmental infrastructure ranging from water resource management to waste recovery

€1.6 billion

has already been invested in infrastructure debt in 6 different sectors in 7 EU countries.

2048 GWh of renewable

energy produced through projects financed by our infrastructure debt strategy.

BY REMEDIATING BROwnFIELD SITES

There are currently over three million brownfield sites in Europe. By remediating these urban sites, we are working for the environment as well as to limit urban sprawl.

600 000M2

of land remediated in Europe since 2009, including the following flagship projects:

3.2ha
REMEDIATED

in Lyon to develop the Canopéa green city project

8 500m2
TO BE REMEDIATED

on the site of a former military barracks in the town centre of Fontainebleau

9ha
remediated

in Mont-Saint-Guibert, Belgium, to create a 30,000 m2 green city

BY REHABILITATING FOREST AREAS AROUND THE WORLD

Deforestation today destroys more than 15 million hectares of forest a year. Developing agro-forestry techniques is a way of slowing this phenomenon and supporting local populations.

5 millions
TREES PLANTED

with projects in Belize, Benin, Kenya, Brazil and Nicaragua

7 500
HA OF FOREST

remediated, with a goal of 25,000 hectares by 2027

6 535
FARMERS SUPPORTED

with a view to the more sustainable management of their land, with an objective of 20,000 by 2027

BY DEVELOPING MORE SUSTAINABLE FARMING

We are firmly convinced that the excellence of our products also hinges on environmental respect. Our approach consists in respecting the earth so that it can be passed on to future generations.
