Solution Publication Criteria
Solutions must form part of the organization/company’s proactive approach to contribute to the fight against climate change and the emergence of attenuation or adaptation solutions.
The organization/company certifies the authenticity of the supplied data concerning each solution submitted and considers that it fulfills the criteria defined by the Club France Développement Durable, namely that:
– It has positive results in environmental, societal and economic matters,
– It is a solution already in deployment, with an implementation of at least a pilot study and can provide tangible results,
– The solution can be deployed on a large scale.

For further information, please read the Charter of Commitment.

How to ensure that your solution appears on the home page and on the first page of search results
Solution referencing on the climate solutions hub is organized as follows:
– Newly posted solutions are given broad visibility during the first days following their publication,
– In general, premium treatment will be given to the most popular solutions, in other words those that have generated the highest number of page views and clicks (Tweet shares, Face book likes…).

Compliance with the Editorial charter
Climate solutions should describe a concrete and operable solution, corresponding to one the uses that it is associated with.

Please note:
• Each affiliated partner may post 10 solutions free of charge: they should ensure that they pace their publications over time.
• Remember, screen document reading time is equivalent to paper document reading time.

Rules:
• publish a solution of 2500 characters maximum in length.
• insert a visual that illustrates your solution (310 x 65) not your organization/company (logos will not be accepted).
• illustrate your solution with videos and visuals.
• associate the key words that reflect the subject of your solutions.

A catchy title should describe the solution and not the organization/company/ or highlight the project leader
• For example: Electric cars at the service of rural mobility / Eco-responsible fridges in supermarkets/ Give a second life to companies’ unsold goods

The solution should have a simple work plan, easily understood by a wide target audience:
• Main title – Who – Why – What – Where – How.
• Part 1: context – diagnosis.
• Part 2: solution description.
• Part 3: results and forecast.

Remember to give a title to each section, to highlight important sentences: help your reader to understand your solution quickly and above all to want to spread the news about it…
