Integrating environmental, climate and energy issues into business strategy
Large companies are aware of their impact on the environment and have a key role to play in promoting new production models and developing technological solutions to improve their environmental, climate and energy performance.
Sustainable development is now a central priority for AFEP’s companies: reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, acceleration of circular economy practices, control of industrial risks, and development of practical experimental approaches in conjunction with the public authorities.
