Set up on the initiative of the City of Paris to help achieve the goals of the Climate Action Plan, the Paris Climate Agency has 85 members and partners. It is a key driving force for energy transition, seeking to involve the entire region and assisting with operational projects, particularly the energy retrofit of buildings. By promoting dialogue and debate around these major issues, the APC also helps create a common knowledge base and initiatives to support urban transformation. It brings stakeholders together in an alliance that aims to achieve energy transition in the city and to combat climate change.
The Invest in Paris agency promotes the city’s economic development worldwide and provides daily support to foreign companies at all stages of setting up business in the French capital. Its multicultural team provides international investors with decision-making tools, assists them with administrative procedures, helps find premises and recruit staff, and facilitates their integration into the region’s economic fabric. In 2013 it helped 90 businesses – 66 of them foreign – to set up in the capital, safeguarding or creating a total of 3,233 jobs.
