Company Energy Saving Plans (France)

On 29th August ’22, the French Prime Minister speaking to MEDEF (Mouvement des Entreprises de France) called for all companies to put in place an energy saving plan in September. The link is here.

She said “In September, every company should put in place its own plan to save energy. If we act collectively, we can overcome the risk of shortages. But if each one of us fails to do our part, or if all negative outlooks come to fruition at once, we will have to impose a decrease in consumption.”

She said she had ordered every government ministry to put in place a plan to cut 10 percent of their energy use within the next two years and she suggested each company also put in place an “energy sobriety ambassador.”

She said corporate energy savings plans will be reviewed in October.

We will be looking out for the legislation that will underpin this, and update French systems accordingly.
