On August 29, 2019, on the occasion of « La Rencontre des Entrepreneurs de France » (LaREF) – a nationwide event gathering business leaders – 99 French companies representing 1,650 billion euros in turnover and 6 millions jobs worldwide, reaffirmed the need to collectively change course by accelerating innovation and R&D through their investments in low-carbon solutions, in order to initiate a drastic reduction in the planet’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. One year later, on the occasion of LaREF 2020, these companies committed to continuing this momentum in 2021 by each mobilizing 10 new companies/partners. The French Business Climate Pledge is a long-standing dynamic which shows the role played by companies in placing carbon as a lever for innovation and mobilization.
