“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.”
