"La crise du Covid-19 est un test pour la RSE des entreprises. Comme bien identifié par SIA, la qualité de l’impact et de l’engagement des initiatives prenant en compte les différentes parties prenantes privé-public et société civile sont des facteurs clés de succès."

Fiona REYNOLDS

"We know that investors are often inspired by their peers when it comes to ESG so by highlighting examples of substantive, investor-lead ESG projects, we can hopefully encourage other investors to implement similar initiatives."

María José GÁLVEZ

"La force de l’exemple, levier que nous partageons avec SIA est un formidable moteur d’inspiration et d’adhésion."

Charlene CRANNY

"The most inspirational investor-led ESG projects must be shared and celebrated. These awards will help reveal just how high Europe is raising the bar for the rest of the world."

Fella IMALHAYENE

Global Compact France

"Les ODD représentent 12 mille milliards de dollars d'opportunités business par an et pourtant il n’y a pas suffisamment d’investissements effectués pour les atteindre. C’est pourquoi nous soutenons l’initiative SIA, pour montrer qu’on peut allier intérêt général et opportunités business."

Jean-Guillaume D'ORNANO

Option Finance

"Les entreprises investissent de plus en plus dans des projets ESG, qui profitent aux communautés locales dans le monde entier. Cependant, beaucoup d'entre elles, par manque de ressources, ont du mal à faire connaître leurs engagements pour attirer d’autres investisseurs et obtenir davantage de soutien. SIA veut mettre en lumière ces projets, qui nous l'espérons, inspireront d'autres à suivre l'exemple avec leurs propres initiatives"

Drive inspiration by example

SIA was created to bring recognition, commitment and financial support
to ESG/impact projects, run by investors in order to encourage new initiatives.
