Quote from Global Finance: "Aiming to help clients gain a competitive advantage in both sustainable development and ESG risk management, Societe Generale holds the leading position on Sustainability Financing. It received various recognitions from international organizations and rating firms, such as IFR and MSCI. Societe Generale also raised 157 billion euros ($169 billion) in 2021, which significantly surpassed its 2020 sustainability-financing goal of raising €120 billion by 2023. The company set up a series of new commitments in 2022, including a new target to facilitate €300 billion of sustainable finance by 2025 to cover both environmental and social objectives and to reduce portfolio emissions with several emissions-related goals targeting intensive sectors such as power generation and oil and gas. In addition to its sustainability financing goals, Societe Generale’s “ESG by Design” program aims to implement ESG objectives into its operations by offering corporate social responsibility and decarbonization-related trainings to all employees."
