Event Summary:

France – Big Green Recovery Plan…and The Other Current Measures to Scale Up Green Investment

France was the leading European country in terms of foreign direct investment attractiveness in 2019. In this webinar we’ll explore how this “big green recovery plan” could further support its competitiveness and boost foreign investments.

The green recovery plan is structured around four pillars: investments in energy performance renovations for buildings, “green” infrastructure and mobility, reduction of the carbon-intensity of manufacturing processes, and the development of new green technologies (hydrogen, biofuels, recycling).

We'll focus on two key measures: 1.2bn€ over three years (2020-2022) dedicated to the industry decarbonation ; 7bn€ over 10 years (2021-2030) to develop green hydrogen. We’ll discuss them with industry practitioners and French politicians. After the webinar, we hope you will be able to know what your next “green” investment will be!


Discussion Points:

- Overview of green recovery measures

1) focus on decarbonization and hydrogen related measures
