Experts in Factoring

Factoring allows you to sell your receivables for immediate payment to get cash to finance your operating cycle. This is a suitable solution for any type of company as long as it works in B2B and serves corporates and professionals, the government or associations. Thanks to our factoring solutions, you can transfer the ownership of its trade receivables to a factor that offers in exchange for financing its working capital requirements.

Experts in Supply Chain Finance

Supply Chain Finance (SCF) offers contracts reserved for large companies that allow for their suppliers to be paid cash. If the supplier joins the program, Societe Generale Factoring offers pre-financing solutions for their invoices.

Supply Chain Finance programs are structured around the following figures: buyers or contractors, their suppliers, one or more financial partners (factors, banks) and a ‘servicer’, who manages and arranges access to the underlying electronic platform.

ESG Offers

In order to support our clients with their ESG transition goals we have designed two new categories of ESG offers, which are applicable to our flagship products serving corporate clients:  receivable finance, supply chain finance and forfaiting (discounting of commercial bills).

Environmental and/or social financing
The first category of solutions proposed by Societe Generale Factoring aims to finance business activities with positive environmental or social impacts.

Eligible environmental projects must involve assets in a list of eligible categories 2, such as  renewable energy, waste management, clean transportation, hydrogen and sustainable water and waste-water management.

Eligible social projects concern the financing of social or societal claims from, for example, social and solidarity-based companies and associations, education and training, or social housing. The sectors principally concerned include healthcare, in particular hospitals, health insurance, as well as organisations caring for adults and children with disabilities.

A sustainability-linked offer
The sustainability-linked (SL) solution is aimed at companies that have developed an ambitious CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy to improve the environmental and social impacts of their activities. It rewards the achievement of CSR objectives as defined by our clients.

This approach encourages the transition of companies and their suppliers to more sustainable growth models. It is particularly appropriate for Supply Chain Finance programmes of large corporates that have many suppliers, such as mass retailers or industrial manufacturers.

These offers are subject to conditions, and subject to eligibility.
