Ecological transition and geopolitical issues

Conference Chair Debate

French event

Conference co-organised by the Governance and Regulation Chair and the General Council for the Economy, Industry, Energy and Technology


Decarbonisation implies a radical renewal of the technological base on which the economy and society are built. The colossal investments involved in the ecological transition are putting enormous pressure on raw materials markets and leading to a profound reorientation of supply chains. Industrial systems and logistics chains are also having to be reorganised, especially as, in addition to the desire to reduce carbon emissions, geopolitical tensions and sometimes social cohesion policies are leading to the relocation of production and a reduction in the geographical scope of commercial circuits.

All these factors not only fuel the strategic rivalry between the United States, China and Europe, but also create tensions within the European bloc itself. De facto, trade policies are being revised and ambitious industrial policies are being deployed.

The climate imperative and environmental policies thus have a significant impact on the evolution of international relations, just as decarbonisation trajectories are strongly constrained by geopolitical issues.

This conference will bring together experts from a variety of backgrounds (public authorities, industry, research) to share their analyses of the way in which decarbonisation is leading to new tensions on energy and raw material markets, the strategies that industry and governments are putting in place in response, and the resulting geopolitical tensions.
