Natixis, “MLA of the year for Renewables”

Natixis was named “MLA of the Year – Renewables” at the Infrastructure Journal Awards 2011 held in London on March 29.

Responsible and recognized expertise

This award is the crowning piece of 2011, which was a very active year in this sector with 11 major projects structured and financed by the Project Finance team of Natixis’ Corporate and Investment Banking division in France and worldwide. The 11 projects represent a total capacity of 1,200 MW.

A number of these projects were also named “Deal of the Year” at the award ceremony.

These successful operations serve to consolidate Natixis’ world position in the top 10 of banks active in the financing of energy transition and of green and responsible growth.


A fast-growing business

The growth of the project finance business came with an offer expanded to new technologies (offshore wind power, biomass) and to new countries, such as Canada, Germany, and the United Arab Emirates.

Globally, Natixis anticipates all new issues, requirements and opportunities related to sustainable development. As a result, it is in a good position to better take into account and understand the limitation and compensation of the social and environmental impact of the projects it finances.
