Geneviève Férone-Creuzet has been nominated for a three-year term as President of the GreenToken Investment Advisory Committee. This independent body advises WPO’s management on the proper governance of the GreenToken Project and Production Data.
WPO is a leader in independent asset management and associated specialised services for wind and solar power in Europe. In the context of its strategic transformation and the launch of the GreenToken Project, WPO is putting up an Investment Advisory Committee headed by Geneviève Férone-Creuzet.
Geneviève Férone-Creuzet is a pioneer in sustainable finance and one of the most important advocates for an ecological transition in France. Founder and CEO of the consulting firm Casabee, she was, from 2005 to 2013, Director for Sustainable Development of the Eiffage and Veolia groups. Author of Crepuscule Fossile (2015), Geneviève Férone-Creuzet is also Vice-President of both Foundation for Nature and Mankind and The Shift Project.
The Investment Advisory Committee she presides over is an independent body charged with advising WPO and publishing recommendations on the issuance and sale to the public of GreenTokens. Once a year the Committee will publish an activity report of the GreenToken Project over the past period. This activity report will inform the public of the issuance, sale and stocks of GreenTokens and GoCert certificates and the use of invested funds.
The GreenTokens will be issued after the Public Token Offering (visa AMF N°ICO.20-189) WPO will be launching on 8 September 2020. This operation is the first Public Token Offering of the Energy sector to be approved by an independent financial market authority.
“I am committed to oversee governance of the GreenToken, independently from WPO. Both sustainable finance and the energy sector as a whole need new tools, such as the GreenToken, to rise to the challenge of the energy transition. The coming months are crucial, and you can rely on my commitment.” Geneviève Férone-Creuzet, President of the GreenToken Investment Advisory Committee.
"Geneviève Férone-Creuzet has a unique experience and an unwavering commitment to the energy transition. On behalf of WPO and all the stakeholders of the GreenToken project, I want to thank her and bid her welcome aboard this project” said Barthelemy Rouer, CEO de WPO.
