The Climate Solutions Accelerator is aimed at local authorities and large companies wishing to implement solutions led by innovative start-ups and SMEs to meet the challenges of climate change.

It operates as a community by working together with several government agencies, competitive clusters with expertise in the subjects under consideration, and support structures that are both generalists and specialized in GreenTech.

According to experts on the field, individual behavioral changes for the average French person would result in a maximum 20% decrease in personal carbon footprint. This would represent a quarter of the global effort needed to achieve the goal of limiting the average global temperature increase to below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

In total, commitment of individuals and households to decarbonize their lifestyles, which is certainly unavoidable, is nonetheless insufficient to achieve the reduction targets and aim for carbon neutrality in France by 2050.

In order to win the battle and the race against time in which we are engaged at the planetary level, it is necessary to transcend individual action and reach a collective level of action, while involving the citizens too.

While the major orientations for the climate (plans, strategies, etc.) are defined at the national level, it is at at the regional and intermunicipal levels that these policies are implemented in order to ensure the coherence of the measures and their implementation in all sectors.

Local authorities are directly responsible for a certain number of local public services that are related to the environment and allow them to contribute to its protection. To meet the challenges of climate change, they are looking for innovative solutions, particularly from start-ups and SMEs, which in turn need to develop rapidly and "scale up".

These solutions, whether they are high-tech, mid-tech or low-tech, are also in the field of social innovation while allowing the development of new local jobs and the emergence of local activities.

Initially inspired by TED's OUNTDOWN . program to detect and promote inspiring ideas ("We can change Climate Change"), the Climate Solutions Accelerator works operationally with local authorities and start-ups to enhance the implementation of innovative solutions.

Solutions to the climate crisis exist already. We accelerate their launch in five steps:

We

accelerate their launch

in five steps:

01

Detection

of solutions initiated by start-ups and SMEs that address the environmental challenges our species faces.

02

Facilitation

of expressions of needs from local authorities and corporations looking for solutions.

03

Speed-Meetings

through networking days and ultra-targeted meetings, organized with start-ups and SMEs for local authorities and large companies, in the presence of innovation facilitators.

04

Tailored Solution-Building

from offers from start-ups, SMEs and NGOs to local authorities and large companies in order to meet the needs expressed.

05

General Public Promotion

with smart integration of launched solutions into inspiring communications aimed at the general public (social media, press...).

Thanks to a rich local & national ecosystem that facilitates scaling up:

01

Local & Regional Governments

We facilitate the implementation of innovative solutions for local authorities to meet the challenges they face already with climate change.

02

Corporations

As members of the Climate Solutions Accelerator, large companies contribute to the detection of innovations that they can integrate into their own offers, particularly for local authorities.

03

Innovation Facilitators

Competitiveness clusters, government agencies and acceleration hubs get involved in identifying climate and environmental protection solutions.

04

Solution-Oriented Start-Ups & SMEs

Thanks to their ready-to-use technologies, start-ups and SMEs with climate solutions aim to go to scale as quickly as possible.

Right now, local gouvernement authorities are working with pioneering solutions so they move up to the next level:
