Prince Albert completes historic dive to the 'Midnight Zone' for ocean research

Fautrier takes new position with Prince’s government

Fautrier takes new position with Prince’s government

By Cassandra Tanti - September 23, 2019

Prince Albert has appointed Bernard Fautrier as Special Adviser on Environmental Issues. The placement means he will stepdown from his position as Vice-President and CEO of the Prince’s foundation, and hand over the reins to Olivier Wenden.

In environmental terms, it is an important week in the Principality. On Wednesday 25th, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will unveil its special reporton the ocean and the cryosphere. The following day, the Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Oceanwill take place, with Nicole Kidman as emcee, alongside Robert Redford, Uma Thurman and Andy Garcia as headline celebrities supporting the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

In this setting, it was announced on Monday that the foundation will have a change of direction. According to a statement, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, which has fought tirelessly for the protection of the planet and Oceans since 2006, indicates that, by Sovereign Ordinance 7673 dated 9th September, the Prince has appointed Bernard Fautrier as special advisor on environmental issues, effective from 1st October.

So, after being at the helm of the Prince’s foundation since 2006, Bernard Fautrier will next week begin a new mission for the Prince’s government, albeit in the same environmental context as the work he has conducted so far.

Continuity is therefore the key word for this shift, as Olivier Wenden has been the Executive Director of the Foundation since 2014, a position that allowed him, among other things, to contribute to the development of philanthropy and institutional partnerships with Bernard Fautrier.
