Léa Faucheux

In a nutshell, tell us about yourself.
I am a young professional in sustainability and finance. Coming from a management and finance background, I have experience in banking, entrepreneurship, the public sector, NGOs, and activism. What I love most is climate and innovative finance, I am passionate about it. I firmly believe in the financial sector’s power to do good.

I am French and thrive in an international environment. I love to meet new people from different horizons and discover new places – so I am also a big traveler. I am very dynamic but feel engaged only when there is something to learn.

What are your loves?
I love to dance and feel the free movement of the body, from techno music to salsa. I love cooking pastries, one of the ways to challenge myself, and I love philosophy to rethink the work. Mostly, I love to share my passions.

Name three things on your bucket list.
Hike a high-altitude glacier mountain.
Scuba-dive with sharks and whales.
Cross the Atlantic ocean sailing.

What keeps you awake at night?
My feminism, and how can I further defend women’s rights.

How would you like to be remembered?
Be a person who laughs a lot. I have a loud and communicative laugh and love to express my happiness this way.

What’s the best thing about your job?
I am traveling through the diversity of projects while delivering a strong impact, which makes me both happy and proud.

Which book has changed your life?
So difficult to choose… 1984 is very powerful.
