The French Connection to the Climate Transition

Hear about the French government approach to climate leadership


The transition to a low carbon economy in a socially responsible way needs to happen fast…but it also needs to be done right. Brune Poirson, Secretary of State for the French Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition, joins ClimateBiz to discuss President Macron’s approach to climate leadership both domestically and internationally. Tune in to hear about ambitious approaches for everything from plastics to fashion to the financial sector, and how social responses such as the gilets jaunes (“yellow jackets”) influence the conversation.
