News releases AMF: 2019

The AMF announces the composition of its Climate and Sustainable Finance Commission

Published on September 25, 2019

The new commission is a reflection of the various components of the financial markets, civil society and academia, and will provide the AMF with multiple expertise in climate risk and sustainable finance. As a forum for discussion and advice, it will issue recommendations to the AMF and will contribute to the work carried out by the regulator in collaboration with the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution (ACPR) on the monitoring and evaluation of the climate-related commitments of the French financial market.

Announced on 2 July 2019 in a joint release by the French authorities and the financial community, the AMF’s Climate and Sustainable Finance Commission has now been formally set up. The AMF Board has confirmed its composition. The 24 members of the Commission were selected for their high level of expertise in climate risk and sustainable finance. This selection also maintains a balance between the various profiles (issuers, asset managers, investors, extra-financial analysis, civil society, researchers, auditor, etc.). Each member is appointed intuitu personae for a renewable three-year term.
The Commission is chaired by Thierry Philipponnat (a member of the AMF Board), and will hold its first meeting next month

An open mode of functioning

During the summer, the AMF received many expressions of interest in the work of the Climate and Sustainable Finance Commission. This interest reflects the importance of the work to be carried out and illustrates the expertise in green and sustainable finance developed by the French financial market over a number of years.
The transition towards a more sustainable financial and economic model calls for the mobilisation of everyone. The AMF and its commission will therefore strive to set up an open mode of functioning that brings together the various types of expertise of the French marketplace to ensure collective progress in understanding the challenges and developing solutions.
