Caisses Sociales of Monaco pledge to energy transition plan

Caisses Sociales of Monaco pledge to energy transition plan

By Stephanie Horsman - October 11, 2019

The Caisses Sociales of Monaco (CSM) has officially joined the National Pact for Energy Transition, adding to the long list of Monegasque businesses who have signed up to the promise of sustainability.

The CSM’s Director, Jean-Jacques Campana, met Wednesday 9th October with Annabelle Jaeger-Seydoux, Director of the Mission for the Energy Transition, along with their respective teams.

CSM’s commitment is two tiered, as they are owners of buildings that house the Principality’s pension funds (Caisse Autonome des Retraites) and as a business of the tertiary sector.

The Caisses Sociales and their 240 employees already adhere to several environmentally friendly practices, such as eliminating plastic bottles and cups from the worksite, purchasing green electricity, buying an electric vehicle for business use, and making the switch from using paper to electronic means when dealing with policyholders, employees and health professionals.

These significant steps already put them on the right path, but they have plans for even more ambitious objectives now that they are members of the National Pact. They intend to continue to urge dematerialisation until they are 100% digital, will ask that employees use alternative and sustainable mobility choices when possible, install solar panels on their buildings, and conduct energy checks of their buildings periodically.

Meanwhile, the CSM and the Department of Social Affairs and Health met to discuss France’s unemployment insurance reforms and the affect they will have on Monaco. They will be working with their French colleagues in order to guarantee continuity of care for those who are currently not working, taking into account Monaco’s specifications.
