With backing from the European Investment Advisory Hub, Banque des Territoires, a part of France’s Caisse des Dépôts, launched S’GREEN+ to help French cities prepare climate adaptation projects, including the restoration of waterways, creation of biodiversity spaces and limitation of urban sprawl.

S’GREEN+ received support from the European Investment Advisory Hub under the NPBI call for proposals and from Banque des Territoires.

"The ecological transition is the major goal of our recovery plan. Banque des Territoires is using its expertise in technical assistance and investment to provide regions with on-the-ground support."

  • Eric Lombard, chief executive of Caisse des Dépôts

Banque des Territoires is supervising a task force to work with up to 25 medium-sized cities in France to provide each locality with bespoke support for prioritising projects, making decisions and organising financing. This support will result in a specific action plan for each city, listing the projects identified as priorities and outlining the steps needed to implement them, or specific project interventions. All the work carried out by the task force will be uploaded to an online library accessible to all to help share experiences with other communities in France and throughout the European Union. This strong alliance with Banque des Territoires helps Europe in the pursuit of its Green Deal.
