Charlotte Gardes interview, Chair of the ESG Lab & Society Strategic Committee

Charlotte Gardes shares her vision of ESG and her commitment with Aurore Bardon as the Chair of the ESG Lab & Society Strategic Committee.

The ESG pillars

The urgency is to take into consideration the 3 pillars of ESG (environment, social/societal and governance) as a whole at their true value: a sustainable and resilient economic development, a fair ecological transition, and a realignment of the practices of our companies and governments on these objectives. With the aim of resilience and fulfillment to face the climatic, physical, environmental, and social challenges of our time. It’s a logic of permanent integration of ESG in companies’ practices that will determine the achievement of these objectives. Find out the Charlotte Gardes interview :

ESG Lab & Society and Charlotte’s commitment

Large companies have a key role to play in integrating these factors into their business model and strategy by engaging their entire value chain.

The ESG Lab & Society is an excellent initiative that has no equivalent so far! It provides a forum for open dialogue, expert insight into concrete issues and the definition of action plans to implement corporate strategy to change the landscape.

With her large experience, her optimism, innovative ideas and commitment to these issues, Charlotte was the ideal person to chair voluntarily the ESG Lab & Society Strategy Committee, in line with its civic commitment!

Charlotte is in charge of sustainable finance and climate risk issues at the IMF’s Money and Capital Markets Department. Previously, she was at the Treasury Department on these same subjects (2019-2021), and rapporteur of Patrick de Cambourg’s mission on extra-financial information of companies. She is member of the Scientific Committee of the Observatory on Sustainable Finance and of research committees supervised by the ADEME. She started her career in early 2017 at the AMF. She teached at Sciences Po Paris and at the Sorbonne.
