Climate Response Working Group - La Vie en Vert

It is clear that human society is having an impact on our planet and its climate. We need to take action to mitigate this impact.

The France Ireland Chamber of Commerce counts many companies among its members - many of whom are leading the way and taking their own actions to mitigate climate impact.

This Working Group’s scope will be to work to harness that action towards a more cohesive awareness and positive effect in Irish business society.

The main objective of the group is to provide a forum of likeminded CEOs dealing with France and Ireland to share experiences and thought processes relating to important themes such as strategy, HR, and the impact of the digital world. The idea is to engage leaders in conversation with some introductory thoughts on the chosen topic, followed by a shared discussion around their specific ideas and experiences.
