Climate warming: Independent public and administrative authorities develop their collaboration

Published on December 19, 2019

The AMF, the Autorité de la concurrence, ARCEP, ARJEL, ART, CNIL, CRE, CSA and HADOPI.gathered at the offices of the French Financial Regulator (Autorité des marchés financiers, AMF) on 16 December 2019 to discuss incorporating climate objectives defined by the Paris Agreement into their strategic priorities and operational activities.

Meeting the Paris Agreement objectives requires far-reaching and irreversible changes in all economic activities, with far-reaching implications for society. These essential changes needed to fight climate warming and to adapt our economies, like the opportunities and risks they involve, are key factors in regulation. Regulators thus must be able to accompany these changes and light the way for society, which is demanding a response on these issues.
