Climate strategy : Crédit Mutuel Arkéa publishes its commitments for 2024
Brest, 15 April 2021 - Crédit Mutuel Arkéa has announced the formalisation of its commitments to transform its financing and investment practices across all its activities in response to the urgent need to address the climate issue. While this climate strategy is a long-term one, it sets initial medium-term objectives in line with the group's new strategic plan, Transitions 2024. All of these commitments are in line with the banking group’s purpose, adopted at the Annual General Meeting last May.
As a socially responsible, ethical and inclusive company that is attentive to the environment, Crédit Mutuel Arkéa is strengthening the integration of environmental and social issues in all its activities. In view of the urgency of the climate change situation and convinced that it is a performance issue, the group has formalised a climate strategy based on commitments directly related to its business activities. These commitments aim to strengthen the group's commitment to the climate with regard to companies and regions by providing financial and extra-financial support for their environmental transition initiatives, and to integrate climate change into the assessment of the performance and risk of the group's activities.
The Board of Directors of Crédit Mutuel Arkéa, which met today, unanimously validated the candidacy of Julien Carmona for the position of Director of Crédit Mutuel Arkéa, following the meeting of the Appointments Committee held yesterday.
This approval by the Board of Directors paves the way for the electoral process, through a dedicated resolution submitted to the vote of the local banks chairmen. If Julien Carmona is elected at the General Meeting on 11 May, he will become a director of Crédit Mutuel Arkéa from that date. He could then be appointed Chairman of the group at a Board meeting to be held in early June.
