The third edition of the French Infrastructure, Urban Development and Real Estate summit (SIATI) took place on June 13, 2017 in Paris, where the most deserving public and private sector institutions in each sector were honoured during the awards and dinner. Held at the Pavillon d’Armenonville, the event was attended by 650+ representatives of local communities, infrastructure funds and investors who gathered to discover how diversified, performing and innovative the projects conducted with a sustainable development approach could be.

Despite strong competition, Mirova ranked first (Trophée d’Or) in the “Infrastructure funds – the best green strategy” category for the third consecutive term with Mirova-Eurofideme 3. This is the third investment fund managed by Mirova dedicated to equity investments in greenfield renewable energy assets across Europe, since the launch of its business in 2002. As a responsible investor, Mirova has committed to steer financing towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals, notably in terms of access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy sources. over the last 15 years, the Renewable Energy team contributed to the construction of 155+ well diversified renewable energy projects (1.3GW), spanning from wind farms, solar panels, hydroelectric and biomass, in Europe and representing € 2 billion of total investments*.

“We are delighted and honored to be rewarded with this prize once again, as it sheds lights on the continued work of our efforts towards the financing of the energy transition,” commented Raphaël Lance, Head of Renewable Energy Funds at Mirova. "Our strategy consists in the building of long term partnerships and co-investments with industrials to develop and exploit impactful projects for local communities, which are structured so as to optimise the potential value creation for our clients. We thank them all for the confidence they put in our capabilities.”

The SIATI’s yearly awards ceremony has a hundred of companies, investment funds and public operators compete against each other to win gold in their respective categories. The best sector players and representatives of the most innovative regions are shortlisted by the organisers and invited to submit a comprehensive application form, before being assessed and interviewed by a panel of experts who will choose the final winner.
