The two-day event will feature inspiring contributions, technical workshops, and debates on four key topics: the circular economy, objective net zero, nature and biodiversity and the recovery plan through support for the transition across the regions. The theme linking all these topics will be the major 2021 cause: water.
The Solutions Village will also be back this year and will feature more than 300 environmental solutions from all business sectors. These will be on show live at the Palais de la Bourse, as well as virtually. The summit will also include several professional events and the Grand Concours des Solutions (Major Solutions Competition).
Some 5000 professionals, representatives from start-ups, small and medium-sized companies, major groups, investors, and public players will attend the event, collectively taking action for the planet. They will include 300 solutions and exhibitors, 150 speakers and 80 journalists from a total of 30 different countries.
The purpose of World Impact Summit is to shore up ENGIE's position as a major player in the energy transition and to organise meetings with influential, inspiring, and innovative players so as to create new business models.
ENGIE will be sponsoring the morning topic – "net zero" – in which Claire Waysand will be involved.
The Group is also on the panel of the Concours des Solutions.
