Paris, 21 November 2011 – NYSE Euronext (NYX) and CF&B Communication today announced that Clean Green Event 2011® will take place on November 28 and 29 at Châteauform’ Monceau in Paris. Over 60 European cleantech and environmental businesses are expected to attend this year, along with some 100 specialised international investors.

At Clean Green Event 2010®, 600 meetings were organised and 25% of participating businesses successfully raised capital to fund growth. This year, CF&B Communication expects even better results, with over 1,500 meetings already scheduled.

  • Highlights of this exceptional two-day event include:
  • One-to-one meetings of companies, investors and partners
  • Specialised platforms featuring 15-minute presentations by participating companies
  • Plenary sessions with key players in finance including NYSE Euronext
  • An awards ceremony for two NYSE Euronext prizes honouring the Best Cleantech Companies among participants, with winners selected on the basis of growth and innovation.

“NYSE Euronext is proud to support CF&B Communication in launching the second Clean Green Event®. Like consumers, businesses and government, investors are aware of the critical role of renewable energy, water treatment, waste management and recycling in protecting our environment,” said Marc Lefèvre, Head of European Domestic Listings Coverage at NYSE Euronext.

“Around thirty cleantech companies are listed on NYSE Euronext’s regulated market and on NYSE Alternext. They come from countries including France, Belgium, Portugal, Canada and China, and together have raised over €2.4 billion in the past five years,” he added. “Businesses in this attractive sector are using their visibility on financial markets to accelerate value creation and deploy their growth strategies.”

Francis Bader, CEO of CF&B Communication, said “We are delighted to welcome NYSE Euronext to the Clean Green Event® for the second year, where it will be demonstrating the short and medium-term benefits of listing on its markets – an effective source of financing once companies have reached maturity.”
