The issues in the sector:

Since the work of the Club of Rome in the early 1970s (Limits to Growth, 1972) and René Dumont’s candidacy in the 1974 French Presidential election, the environment has become a daily concern at the centre of political debate and economic issues.

The environment is itself a concern for companies and often becomes the focus of their strategic thinking. Likewise, land development and planning are at the top of the list of current issues when discussing the reconversion of industrial areas.

It is a complex sector and the legal difficulties are increasingly acute as social, scientific and technical progress is made.
