BeFC as an actor of change at Produrable2022: Time of Choices
BeFC at the 15th Edition of the Produrable Salon: the European Giant of Ecology
For BeFC, the month of September was marked by a significant event: the chance to exhibit the biofuel paper cells at the largest European meeting of actors and solutions for the sustainable economy: the Produrable exhibition. This high-caliber event gathers more than 450 speakers during 190 conferences and collaborates with the principal professional networks and media. BeFC had an official stand at the event, and is proud to have counted amongst its visitors Marlène Schiappa, Secretary of State in charge of the Social and Solidary Economy and Associative life.
BeFC at Produrable: the CSR’s 48 hours in Europe
Produrable is organised under the high patronage of the French Ministry of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion. For more than 14 years, Produrable has been the leading professional event in the Sustainable Development and CSR agenda in Europe. Its multidimensional approach is centered around targeted quality programs, a unique platform of CSR solutions, and speakers who are also actors, with high expertise in their fields.
Produrable is a committed and coherent business event with a database of more than 55 000 professionals. The Produrable 2022 edition gathered more than 8000 visitors, constituted by a corporate public at 70%, mostly private sector companies. Olivia Grégoire, Secretary of State at the French Ministry of Finance also attended and said that “Produrable proves that transition is a topic in the air of time and at the heart of the concerns of companies”.
Produrable featured different types of sessions with various formats: 2 advocacy sessions, workshops, plenary sessions and multitudes of roundtables that were themed around the exponant’s subjects of interests and areas of work. Clusters of topics were categorised under 3 main umbrellas, People, Planet and Purpose, which were represented in 3 physical areas. The themes of the exponants alongside BeFC ranged from Agro-food and nutrition, Circular economy and resources, Ethical digital technology, Smart cities or Responsible production and consumption… amongst others crucial questions.
BeFC pitched at “Produrable2022: Time of Choices”
Eliott Aubert, BeFC’s business developer and Alexandre Bloch, BeFC’s Sustainability Lead attended the event to represent BeFC’s team. Eliott had the chance to pitch the eco-friendly paper-based biofuel cell as a replacement for the miniature batteries that currently occupy the industry. Miniature batteries are harmful to the environment, and very difficult and expensive to collect and recycle. On the other hand, our biodegradable, environmentally friendly and economically viable battery provides an innovative sustainable solution for multiple industries in need of low-power electronics.
During the event, BeFC was happy to see that our stand was visited by the Secretary of State in charge of the Social and Solidarity Economy and Associative life, Marlène Schiappa. She noticed the biofuel cell and spent time visiting our booth, which is a notable win for BeFC, as she is in charge of the elaboration and implementation of the French Government’s policies in the field of a more sustainable economy.
As Eliott and Alexandre explained, BeFC’s mission to power the future through nature is in perfect harmony with this year’s theme of Produrable. This year’s version of the ecological trade-show was about discussing the urgency to undertake, as of this decade, the profound transformation of consumption patterns, land use planning, technologies and productive investments. The 2022 edition’s key issue was Supply Change, and it was named: “Produrable, Time of Choices”. BeFC is proud to be counted as a major actor of change with its own stand at Produrable.
The event was described as a real lever of intention through the abundance of inspiring encounters, and a lever for the level of coherent action through the actors of solutions who have expressed themselves. Produrable was committed to setting an example by ensuring the exhibitions are not only an enjoyable moment but also fully responsible: CSR measures were implemented and respected, up to the carbon footprint of the event that is evaluated by South Pole, a leader in decarbonisation that works with business and government across the globe. At BeFC, we salute this level of dedication and our team is also striving to implement the best environmental practices inside our offices and in our homes.
