Grenelle Environment Summit

A series of meetings organised in 2007 in France between politicians, non-governmental organisations and civil society representatives, covering many environment-related issues. The aim was to determine practical actions to encourage sustainable development in all sectors (transport, industry, property, education, the economy, taxation, etc.). One of the flagship objectives of the Grenelle Environment Summit is to reduce France's consumption of thermal energy (oil, gas, etc.) by 25% by 2020.
