PARC guiding principles are integrity, interdisciplinary collaboration, scientific rigor and innovation inclusivity. Its governance consists of two separate committees:

A Strategic Advisory Board chaired by Bertrand Badré gathering representatives from the founders and key members with a goal to define and drive the overall PARC strategy.

A Scientific Committee chaired by Pierre-Louis Lions with a dual membership that guarantees the adequacy of the research work with the needs of professionals:

  • an academic college with representatives of the main French research centres on sustainable finance.
  • a practitioner’s college with representatives of public and private financial institutions.
