Romain Lonchambon - 02-déc.-2015 11:07:12

  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 Galerie des Solutions 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.

COP21: Solutions Gallery

Romain Lonchambon - 02-déc.-2015 11:01:21

  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 Galerie des Solutions [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 Galerie des Solutions [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).
