The protection of the ocean and blue finance were at the heart of CFM Indosuez’s official centenary celebration on the rooftop of the Oceanographic Museum and in the presence of Prince Albert II.
To symbolise the bank’s commitment to this cause, a dinner was organised on Tuesday 7th June at Monaco’s iconic Oceanographic Museum. In addition to the breathtaking view of Monaco, guests were treated to an original and innovative show on the theme of the sea.
The evening took place in the presence of Prince Albert II, who made a speech underlining the role of CFM Indosuez in the economic development of the Principality over the past 100 years, as well as the bank’s commitment to sustainable development and responsible finance for over 20 years.
In addition, representatives of the Monegasque government and various institutions were present for the celebration.
CFM Indosuez has worked alongside the Oceanographic Institute to “promote awareness, love for and protection of the oceans” since 2020. The bank has also demonstrated commitment to corporate social responsibility by offering responsible investment solutions to clients since the launch of the first Monegasque fund on this theme in 2002, by limiting its corporate environmental footprint, by the support of local charities with the participation of the bank’s employees in Citizen Days, and by favouring partners who are themselves committed to sustainable development and the protection of the oceans.
The bank sponsored a coral on behalf of each guest, with each person receiving a personalised bracelet containing its GPS coordinates.
“This donation symbolises the ambition of CFM Indosuez, its clients, employees and partners to contribute together to a more responsible world,” said the bank in a statement.
