Paris Green : Invest for future

The Paris climate agency and Paris development agency have created a platform to share the strategies and features that make Paris a sustainable, smart and innovative city. It is also a showcase for the entire region’s strong commitment to energy transition. Aimed at economic, academic and institutional stakeholders, this platform is part of the drive to tackle global climate issues through a conference taking place in Paris in December 2015.

Detailed Solution description is an online web platform to promote the attractiveness of Paris as smart and sustainable city.

The challenge now is to harness Paris’s economic potential to tackle the new imperative of energy transition, accelerating the move towards a green economy and creating a unique attractiveness factor. To achieve this goal, raising the awareness of French companies and international investors is a major challenge for the Paris metropolitan area.

Supported by a complete ecosystem of closely networked stakeholders plus highly effective, progressive networks and infrastructure, Paris stands out as a platform for innovation and experimentation, driven by a shared, socially responsible political will.

A unique ecosystem exemplifying how Paris’s economic potential is being harnessed to tackle the new challenge of energy transition, accelerating the move towards a green economy and creating a unique attractiveness factor.
