Combining expertise in the field of climate, renewable energy and biodiversity finance, Jerome co-leads ICF European work in the field of sustainable and positive impact finance. Jerome’s mission consists in ensuring ICF adopts a comprehensive and integrated approach to sustainable finance. He also works on the design, implementation and evaluation of innovative financial instruments aiming to leverage private finance for low carbon innovation and nature-based solutions.
Jerome coordinates all the activities of the innovative EU Business & Biodiversity Platform on behalf of the European Commission since 2015. His work led to the establishment of an EU level Community of Practice on Finance & Biodiversity to integrate biodiversity and natural capital into mainstream financial activities and to foster investments in natural capital as a new asset class. ICF was recently awarded the contract for the next Phase of the Platform (2020-2022) and will continue engaging with financial institutions and businesses on this challenging topic.
In recent years Jerome also worked on the design of a new Blue Economy Investment Platform at EU level and on the development of a guidebook for policymakers worldwide to help them to design programmes for supporting clean energy innovation.
Jerome holds a MSc in Ecological Economics from the University of Edinburgh and is a Certified Expert in Climate and Renewable Energy Finance from the Frankfurt School - UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance.
