Climate and resilience bill: Impact France's proposals

Climate and resilience bill: Impact France's proposals

Within the framework of the "Climate and Resilience" bill currently being examined in the National Assembly, the Impact Movement, in collaboration with the actors of the Nous Sommes Demain coalition, has drafted a series of proposed amendments to give this bill the ambition it should have had.

Indeed, in view of the magnitude of the climatic and social challenges that our era requires us to take up, the Impact France Movement believes that this bill should not be limited by the systematic opposition of certain actors, but should constitute a real turning point for the entire French economic fabric in favour of a true ecological and social transition.

The Impact France Movement regrets the absence of measures that really encourage companies to transform their operations and improve their ecological and social impact. It therefore calls for the inclusion in this bill of strong measures to combine performance and commitment and to really be part of a logic of resilience, far from "greenwashing" and announcement effects.

These proposals are in line with those already made during the 2021 Finance Bill, and those emanating from the Citizen's Climate Convention with which the Impact France Movement has been working in recent weeks.

The main proposals tabled by the Impact France Movement are the following:

  • The creation of a social and ecological impact index, similar to the professional equality index
  • The introduction of a bonus/malus based on social and ecological impact results
  • Ban on advertising for companies that do not meet a minimum threshold of environmental and social commitments
  • The extension of the obligation to publish a transparent carbon footprint for companies with more than 50 employees (scope 1, 2, 3)
  • The creation of a legal reserve dedicated to the ecological and social transformation of companies up to 10% of profits.
  • The transformation of Bpifrance's role in favour of the ecological and social transition
  • Better targeting of regulated savings managed by the Caisse des Dépôts et des Consignations and the banks to finance investments in the ecological and social transition
  • Strengthening the consideration of social and environmental aspects in the award criteria of public procurement

To present our proposals, Eva Sadoun, co-president of the Movement, was a guest on France Inter's programme On n'arrête pas l'éco.
