1. Source: RGREEN INVEST, Carbon footprint scope 4 Estimates based on an internal calculation methodology. Note that the quantity of avoided emissions attributable to a renewable energy project financed by RGREEN INVEST depends significantly on the emission factor of the country in which the project is located. Where renewables replace fossil fuel capacity, particularly coal-fired power plants, the emissions avoided will be significant. Avoided emissions also depend on the renewable technologies deployed. This parameter explains why the avoided emissions of wind power are more important than those of solar power, even though the proportion of these two technologies is comparable in the RGREEN INVEST portfolio. RGREEN INVEST has calculated the carbon footprint for its direct and indirect operations (Scopes 1, 2, 3, including 3.15), which amounted to 243 000tCO2e in 2022.

Tailoring finance to entrepreneurs
Safeguarding the future relies on our collective will to each do our part. For RGREEN INVEST this translates as a commitment to redirect investments towards a new energy production model where entrepreneurship and finance share central roles as catalyzer and facilitator respectively.
We believe the future must not only be played within the walls of regulatory and financial institutions, but also placed in the hands of entrepreneurs who are able to develop the technologies that allow us to shift gears. They are the ones who develop the technologies that allow us to change the model. The role of investors is to provide the financial support to move up a gear at the right time.
“When developing infrastructure, you’re playing the long game. This means you have to incorporate into your risk analysis metrics that are not strictly financial. These are the foundational pillars of financial sustainability, and today they have become a true differentiating factor. Industry players who effectively, and with integrity, enshrine ESG principles into their investment practices, and subject these commitments to obligations of results will emerge as true champions of the energy transition.”
