Introduction to eco-certified business parks in the Paris Region

On March 7th and 8th, 2011, the Paris Region was pleased to host its Interreg Ecrein+ Programme European partner regions.

This Paris Region's stage in the programme (led by the Rhône-Alpes Region) was devoted to the issue of business parks inside and around European metropolitan areas. It provided an opportunity to present the region's initiatives in favour of business parks, using a variety of tangible examples of Paris Region eco-parks (Vaux-le-Pénil, Sénart, Paris Nord2 and Les Portes du Vexin), as well as putting forward the perspective of eco-certified business park enhancement via the Econovista mapping instrument, using a method that was developed by PREDA together with its partners.

A very attentive audience appreciated the region's unique approach, which uses requalification and organisational instruments to focus on improving existing conditions in order to provide a wide range of businesses with fully renovated places to settle in.

Jean-Paul Planchou - 3rd Vice-Chairman of the Île-de-France Regional Council in charge of Economic Development, Employment, New Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Tourism, Innovation and Social and Interdependent Economy - closed the session by repositioning this topic within the range of issues to be addressed in preparing the future SRDEI (Regional Strategy on Economic Development and Innovation).
