Socially Responsible Investment Green Investing 2010: Nice Côte d'Azur International Sustainable Development Financing Conference 10 December, 2010 - Nice, France
EDHEC, in partnership with Ville de Nice, Nice Côte d’Azur, Eco-Vallée, Team Côte d’Azur and CCI Nice Côte d’Azur, have decided to launch an international conference to promote Green Investing.

By organising the Nice Côte d’Azur International Sustainable Development Financing Conference, EDHEC and its partners are seeking to present the latest research on investment criteria in sustainable development and on new findings and innovative projects in the field of green business.

The conference is aimed at institutional investors, senior executives of investment management and private equity companies and other industry providers who are concerned about sustainable development.


The morning will be broken down into plenary sessions presenting research on the financial assessment of sustainable development research. These sessions will be followed by a round table discussion on the subject of how to stimulate investment in sustainable development in Europe, with European leaders from the OECD, the European Investment Bank, the French Ministry of Sustainable Development as well as representatives from two major sustainable development funds.

The afternoon will be dedicated to workshops where innovative green businesses will share their expertise in terms of clean technologies and will present their vision of the following sectors, future developments and their positioning of new offers and technologies within these sectors:
  • Smart grids and energy storage
  • Green building and energy efficiency
  • Renewable energy
  • Water treatment and waste management
The conference will close with a final plenary session on the theme “When energy saving becomes a profitable business” led by the Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce, with a presentation of a feasibility study concerning the creation of an energy saving company.
