Dexia, laureate of the EDC "Ethique et gouvernance" prize

 

In the presence of Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin, Mr. Pierre Richard, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of the Management Board of Dexia, received today the "Ethique et gouvernance" prize, awarded by Ecole des dirigeants et créateurs d'entreprise (EDC), directed by Mr. Alain-Dominique Perrin, board member of Compagnie Financière de Richemont.

This trophy singles out companies concerned with ethical values and sustainable development.

Dexia, the "bank for sustainable development", was rewarded for its humanitarian philanthropy actions, for the work done by its Foundation in favour of the social integration of youth and more generally for its support to the action of local authorities in favour of the protection and improvement of the (living) environment.

Expressing his thanks to the jury for this distinction, Pierre Richard said : "We derive our legitimacy from our assistance to the local authorities and it is the most worthy activity I could ever dream of, i.e. to support those who relentlessly devote themselves to their fellow citizens, the local councillors".
