Carine is the Chief Financial Officer of EDF’s international division. Putting responsible financing at the core of EDF’s investment decision, she is notably promoting the launch of off-grid home solar solutions in Africa with an ambition to reach 3 million customers by 2020. Prior to this position, Carine was EDF’s Head of Investors & Markets, and convinced internal stakeholders to launch EDF’s first Green Bond in 2013.
