As a major player in the fight against global warming and leading the energy transition, Nexans is organizing its first Climate Day in Paris on September 22, 2020. This first edition will bring together global experts on these issues to provide answers to the planet's call for sustainable electrification.

Leaders with diverse opinions will attend to discuss the major issues facing us with regard to the world’s electrification. It will open up the discussion to arrive at shared thinking about the solutions, as Nexans does not have the answers to all these questions on its own.

The starting point for the discussions will be an unprecedented global study by Roland Berger consultants about the challenges around the world’s electrification which it is our duty to overcome.

Organized in Paris at the GoodPlanet Foundation, under the high patronage and in the presence of its founder Yann Arthus-Bertrand, this event will provide an opportunity to discuss the challenges of sustainable electrification of the world and its key role in the fight against climate change.

Christel Heydemann, Executive Vice-President, France Operations Schneider Electric, Mark Lewis, Global Head of Sustainable Research at BNP Paribas Asset Management, Emmanuel Fagès, Partner in charge of electrification issues at Roland Berger and Christopher Guérin, CEO of Nexans, will answer questions from journalists and thought leaders.

Edouard Lecerf, Deputy general director of BVA, will comment on the results of a global poll conducted in France, the United Kingdom and the United States. The results of this international study will provide a point of comparison between the perceptions of the public opinions surveyed.

“ One of Nexans' missions is to bring together leaders with diverse opinions to debate the major issues facing us in terms of electrification of the world. Nexans does not have the answers to all these questions alone and that is why I wanted this Climate Day, the first one which is being held in Paris, to open up these debates to structure collective thinking around the answers to be provided. The discussion will start with a global comprehensive study by Roland Berger on the challenges that the electrification of the world raises that all of us have to overcome. ”

Christopher Guérin

CEO of Nexans

A major partnership with an environmental focus in the field of sports will also be announced.

The morning has been followed by a work luncheon with the speakers and members of the Nexans Executive Committee in order to explore further the solutions put forward by Nexans.
