With understated urban transport, clean water and transformed and recycled waste, the sustainable city aims for a circular and inclusive economy. By concentrating the construction and transport industries, it encourages innovation in order to design energy-saving products such as bio-based materials or non-motorised mobility. 

France is the tenth largest exporter for sustainable cities in the world. Thanks to its know-how and its ecological ambition, the French model is being exported thanks to a dynamic and innovative industrial fabric.

From ecological green cement to passenger air transport, French industry gives pride of place to greenery and town planning through revolutionary technologies. The connectivity of buildings or hydraulic infrastructures reinforces energy performance. France shines through its ingenuity, notably for waste treatment, and in particular, for the recycling of plastic.
