Catalyst for regional dynamism
The Caisses d'Epargne support regional decision-makers by setting their actions within a framework of long-term, trusting relationships. The banks maintain close ties with their customers in terms of interpersonal relations and the decision-making process to guarantee efficiency and responsiveness: business leaders, players active in the social and solidarity-based economy as well as in the social housing sector, representatives of local authorities or associations, etc. They provide them with appropriate and innovative solutions in terms of financing, payments, cash flow management, investments, employee savings and retirement schemes.
Society: sustainable and positive impact at a local and regional level
The social and environmental responsibility of the Caisses d'Epargne has formed an integral part of their history since the moment of their creation.
To ensure their economic performance over the long term and a positive impact on their regions, the Caisses d'Epargne have adopted a national framework to guide the way each Caisse d'Epargne develops its own cooperative, social and environmental strategy. The goals of this strategy are to make the French savings banks key players in the transformation of their territories and the local economy, to encourage their employees and cooperative shareholders to become “cooperative players” and anticipate the needs of society in order to build progressive solutions.
Within the framework of its partnership with the Olympic & Paralympic Games Paris 2024 and in pursuit of its long-established commitment to sport, the Caisse d'Epargne has created Pacte Utile, a program of commitments designed to ensure that France’s most important sporting event of the decade remains “Games useful for all." The Pact makes three promises: to be useful to the athletes, to be useful to society at large, and to be useful to local and regional France. More particularly, it has set up a program aimed at restoring and building sports grounds and facilities that are accessible to all and promote the free and inclusive practice of sport.
