Smoove bidrager til COP22 med bycykelsystem til Marrakech

Business France Danmark - 03-nov.-2016 14:34:46

  Smoove bidrager til COP22 med bycykelsystem til Marrakech Smoove bliver første leverandør af bycykler på det afrikanske kontinent    ·   300 bycykler opstilles i forbindelse med COP22 i Marrakech den 7. – 18 november ·   Smoove lancerede sit bycykelsystem i Helsinki i maj 2016 og har en brugertilfredshedsgrad på 84 % i den finske hovedstad. ·   Smoove ekspanderer kraftigt i hele verden og ønsker også at tilbyde sine løsninger til danske byer   Smoove vandt FN-organisationen UNIDO’s (United Nations Industrial Development Organisation) udbud om at installere bycykler i Marokkos fjerdestørste by, Marrakech, i forbindelse med afholdelsen af FN’s klimaforhandlinger COP22 fra den 7. til den 18. november 2016. I samarbejde med en lokal partner, Estates Vision, vil Smoove de næste 5 år drive ”Medina Bike”, som bliver det første bycykelsystem i Afrika. Ialt opstilles 300 bycykler på 10 stationer, som alle ligger nær Marrakechs seværdigheder som Koutoubia-moskeen eller den franske maler Jacques Majorelles have  Jardin Majorelle.  Indvielsen finder sted under COP22 klimatopmødet. Medina Bike er blevet til, fordi Marokkos konge Mohammed VI, den marokkanske regering og miljøorganisationen GEF (Global Environment Facility) har ønsket at vise konkrete initiativer til at begrænse de negative konsekvenser af klimaforandringerne i forbindelse med COP22.  « Cyklen var tidligere et af de mest udbredte transportmidler i Marrakech men har mistet terræn hen over årene, ligesom det er sket mange andre steder. Medina Bike giver nyt liv til cykelkulturen og tak til Marrakech, den røde by, for det ! Hermed bliver Smoove den første leverandør af bycykler på det afrikanske kontinent !” udtaler Smooves direktør, Laurent Mercat. Opstillingen af bycyklerne i Marrakech kommer til at ske hurtigt, ligesom det var tilfældet i Helsinki, hvor Smoove introducerede sit bycykelsystem med stor succes i maj 2016. Allerede nu er der 25000 finske abonnenter (4000 nye hver måned !) og 83,89% af brugerne siger, at de er tilfredse eller meget tilfredse med brugen af cyklerne og cyklernes tilstand (brugertilfredshedsundersøgelse udført af Recens *). ”Bycyklerne i Helsinki, som drives af vores datterselskab CityBikeFinland, er Smoove’s mest vellykkede projekt nogensinde med en meget høj brugergrad (omkring 4,5 tur pr. cykel pr. dag) og i alt 400.000 ture i perioden maj – oktober 2016. Helsinki er blevet vores showcase, og vi benytter allerede nu byen til at teste nye løsninger, som så senere rulles ud i resten af verden. Bl.a. de tests vi udfører lige nu omkring overflow, og som gør det muligt for brugeren at aflevere cyklen, selv om en station allerede er fyldt op. Denne løsning får den finske hovedstad glæde af til foråret, eftersom cyklerne i Helsinki netop nu er på vej i vinterhi” , siger Laurent Mercat. Smoove er blandt verdens førende leverandører af bycykelsystemer med sine innovative løsninger : robuste, intelligente cykler med indbygget kommunikationsteknologi (”Smoove Box”) og lette, selvbærende stationer med solenergiforsyning som ikke kræver større anlægsarbejder. Disse konkurrencefordele har hjulpet Smoove til stor vækst og succes på det internationale marked i år. « Først lykkedes vores overflow tests, så vi nu kan tilbyde en helt ny feature, og nu afslutter vi på smuk vis et travlt år med lancering af bycyklerne i Marrakech. I foråret opsatte vi 1500 cykler i Helsinki, i sommer gjaldt det Vancouver i Canada, Shymkent og Almaty i Kasakhstan, samt 2. fase af udrulningen i Moskva, hvor der nu kører mere end 3450 bycykler rundt ! Nu er vi parat til også at tilbyde vores løsninger i Danmark” , siger Helene Papa, Head of Marketing & Communication hos Smoove.   * * *   * Undersøgelse udført af det finske bureau RECENS for Helsinkis transportmyndigheder HSL/HST, på basis af svar fra 2500 brugere og ikke-brugere.

Awards and Trophies handed out by World Efficiency as part of COP21

Business France - 30-nov.-2015 17:33:47

  Trophies for Climate Solutions An increasing number of businesses are committed to production, construction, development and operations models that have less impact on resources and the climate. Innovative solutions in terms of reducing energy consumption, cutting greenhouse gases and safeguarding resources already exist. With a view to highlighting them, the ADEME (French Environment and Management Agency), C3D (Collège des Directeurs du Développement Durable), Crédit Coopératif, Orée Association (Business and Local Areas), Solutions COP21, Shift Project and World Efficiency have launched the first Trophies for Climate Solutions. Certified by the COP21 "solutions agenda", the purpose of the trophies is to recognise the best climate change attenuation and/or adaptation solutions and give these initiatives a standard-setting value for other businesses looking to take action in these areas. The Trophies will be officially awarded on 2 December 2015 at the “Galerie des Solutions” expo held at Le Bourget Exhibition Centre by World Efficiency during COP21 . The winners will receive exposure on 4 December at the Winners Conference as part of the COP21 Solutions event at the Grand Palais in Paris.

A unique exhibition of low carbon solutions during COP21

Business France - 30-nov.-2015 17:24:22

  THE SOLUTIONS GALLERY : From 2nd to 9th December in the Museum of Air and Space at Le Bourget, France The Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21) this December is intended to result in an international climate agreement to succeed the Kyoto Protocol. This agreement must be capable of driving forward the reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions so as to restrict the rise in the Earth’s mean temperature by the end of the century to 2°C above the pre-industrial level.  Against this background, Reed Expositions France has been working with the General Secretariat of COP21 to organize the Solutions Gallery from 2nd to 9th December in the Museum of Air and Space at Le Bourget. Intended to support the diplomatic negotiations, the Gallery will be an exhibition of low carbon solutions exclusively reserved for professionals, and its mission will be to demonstrate that solutions do exist and to accelerate their market uptake.  Occupying an area of 10,000 m2, running for seven days, and accessible from the Blue Zone (COP negotiations zone), the Solutions Gallery will present innovative solutions developed and applied by companies, industries or territories that are designed to reduce the impact of economic activities on the climate: equipment, technologies, new models of organization and reproducible best practices…  Over twenty countries will be represented including: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark , Germany, Israel, Japan, Morocco, Norway, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, the United Kingdom,… More specifically, the Ivory Coast, one of the African countries most committed to climate questions, will have a strong presence through a stand presenting initiatives and projects in the country, a broadcast from the TV studio, and visits by numerous officials from the country. As host country, what France has to offer will take pride of place in a dedicated space at the heart of the exhibition.  It is therefore planned to demonstrate solutions – including clean vehicles in a dedicated outdoor space – and to stage special events, such as themed days that are integrated into the schedule of COP21, broadcasts and interviews with companies in a TV studio (eg. daily transport programme with Fer de France), guided tours and site visits for UN delegations. Other highlights will be prestige events such as networking sessions in a dedicated lounge, business lunches, VIP receptions in the heart of Paris… It will also host the official awards ceremonies for two sets of awards. The first Climate Solutions Awards, which will carry the COP21 label. Organized by Orée, AdEME, C3D, Crédit Coopératif, Solutions COP21, the Shift Project and World Efficiency, these will provide recognition for innovative solutions put forward by French SMEs or major groups to reduce energy consumption, limit greenhouse gases and preserve resources. There will also be the ceremony for the international Green Building Solutions Awards, which will be presented for outstanding examples of sustainable construction (building, technical solutions or materials) undertaken in countries covered by Construction21 or in its partner countries.  Over 20,000 professional visitors are expected: participants in COP21 (heads of state, ministers, UN delegations from 197 countries), professionals (private and public sector decision makers and specifiers, delegations invited by the organizers…) and representatives of the media (printed press, radio, television, blogs).   Official website : http://www.lagalerie-cop21.com/
