Sébastien Maire interviewé par le Grand Défi des entreprises pour la planète

Quel est  le rôle des collectivités dans la transition écologique du monde économique ?” C’est la question qui a été posée à Sébastien Maire, délégué général de France Ville Durable, lors d’une interview publiée dans la dernière newsletter du Grand Défi des entreprises pour la planète. 

“Le principal levier de transition écologique d’une collectivité n’est pas son Plan climat-air-énergie territorial (PCAET) mais sa stratégie de soutien à la mutation de l’économie, des emplois et de la formation pour faire bifurquer les trajectoires délétères de l’anthropocène. Et quand les collectivités ne sont pas encore suffisamment « éclairées » sur les enjeux et ne sont pas suffisamment moteur, les acteurs économiques peuvent tout à fait l’être quand même et il y a de multiples exemples de démarches individuelles ou collectives d’entreprises qui vont dans le bon sens, et qui vont parfois plus vite que les décideurs publics”, explique-t-il. 

Face aux conséquences tangibles du dérèglement climatique et les enjeux de l’anthropocène, entreprises et territoires doivent coopérer pour accélérer la mise en œuvre d’actions sobres, résilientes, créatives et inclusives en réponse aux défis écologiques. 

Retrouvez l’interview complète dans la dernière newsletter de Grand Défi des entreprises pour la planète. 

Le Grand Défi des entreprises pour la planète est une initiative participative qui fédère les acteurs économiques et la société civile autour d’un objectif commun : accélérer la transition de l’économie pour mettre en place un modèle durable pour tous.
