The Side Event “Structuring New Markets Linked to Climate Change: South-South Business Models for After the COP22” was organized in the Green Zone of the COP22 on November 16, 2016. The speakers included: Thomas Eymond-Laritaz, Director – APCO Global Solutions (Moderator); Abdeldjellil Bouzidi, Economist, Manager at Emena Advisory, Member of the Public Statistics Authority (France); Catherine Girard, Expert Leader, Energy and Commodities Strategy, Renault; Joël Ruet, Chairman – The Bridge Tank.
This side event, introduced by Thomas Eymond-Laritaz, provided an opportunity to discuss the impact of climate change and the COP21 and COP22 on the economic and industrial sectors. A particular focus was the perspective of innovative business models created in the South-South dynamic. The idea was to anticipate future opportunities, reflect on the structuring of new and green industrial ecosystems, and examine the financial tools that will enable progress in these two areas.
