ADEME launches Climate Solutions Trophy

FRANCE – The ADEME ( Agence de l’environnement et de la maitrise de l’énergie) in association with C3D, Crédit Coopératif, ORÉE, Solutions COP21, The Shift Project and Efficiency World have decided to inaugurate the Trophées Solutions Climat (“Climate Solutions Awards”) in 2015 with the aim of rewarding the best solutions for alleviating and/or adapting to climatic changes. ADEME believes that innovative solutions for energy consumption, for the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and for the conservation of resources should be highlighted and rewarded today more than ever.
As such ADEME is calling upon all interested companies to submit their competition entries as of today at Trophies will be awarded in two distinct categories – Adaptation to climate change and Mitigation (reduction of emissions). Any companies wishing to enter the competition must have completed or carried out a trial on a project or solution which has either provided alleviation to climactic change or has been of proven benefit to the local community in terms of economic factors such as job creation, preservation of natural resources and biodiversity. All candidates must have a site or premises in France but the project itself can have an international dimension.

The awards ceremony will be held on the 2nd of December, 2015 during the COP21 at the Solutions Gallery taking place at Le Bourget and organized by World Efficiency. The winners will also be honoured on the 4th of December, 2015 at the “Winners Conference” at the Grand Palais as part of the COP21 Solutions event. The selection jury will consist of experts in resources and climate and will be chaired by Hervé LE TREUT, climatologist, Director of the Institut Pierre Simon Laplace, Research Director at the CNRS and contributor to the IPCC.
