In the first half of 2014,
European leader in extra financial ratings, Vigeo helps companies define their ESG criteria so that their development projects will be in compliance with the requirements of socially responsible investing (SRI).

Defining sustainable development projects, Reaching out to investors.
Roundtable discussions were held on the following two topics:
Credibility and success factors in responsible bond issues,
Diversification of financing sources, transaction success and investor appetite.
In addition, several SRI companies and investors spoke of their experience with this innovative type of financing.
At the end of the conference,
Nicole Notat, CEO of Vigeo, added, 'Lenders and all corporate stakeholders are becoming increasingly sensitive to the environmental and social impact of projects financed by corporate bond issues.
