12 April 2019
FRORIEP is proud to be listed as one of the only 3 law firms in the Geneva Sustainable Finance Ecosystem. This mapping, aims to inform the community about the large number of institutions active in sustainable finance, in the Geneva and the Swiss romande. 145 actors have already been identified – 45 of which are dedicated solely to sustainable finance; 65 are private sector actors; 72 are international organisations, foundations or associations.
The team focusing on sustainable finance includes in particular partners Laetitia Meier-Droz and Julie Wynne as well as Of Counsel Laurent Develle. Sustainable finance and social entrepreneurship require detailed knowledge of a wide range of legal disciplines including commercial, corporate as well as social finance. We take pride in being able to offer the full service.
Sustainable finance is an increasingly important complement to governmental and philanthropic funding in addressing social and environmental issues. In social finance transactions, both traditional and innovative financing tools use private and/or philanthropic capital to solve social challenges while at the same time delivering financial return. With in-depth experience and expertise in these fields and awareness of the very latest developments in the sector, our clients, investors and social entrepreneurs, benefit from a realistic and pragmatic approach to problem-solving in this dynamic environment.
