Ricard is the historical subsidiary of Pernod Ricard which was created through the link-up between Ricard and Pernod in 1975 . 68 million of liters have been sold last year with 30 brands distributed in France including 15 major international brands.
We decided to support the JCE because we have a common goal: “mieux vivre ensemble” that means “better together”. It is our commitment to continually improve the way we relate to and act towards all the company’s stakeholders, starting with our employees and consumers of our brands and extending all the way to our social and natural environment. Pernod-Ricard spirits are distributed in Europe, this event is a good way to meet our European consumers and let them know more about our brands. No French experience without tasting a glass of Ricard!
Sustainability and responsibility are the main goals of Ricard company. Ricard is with the citizens and acts as a corporate sponsor towards: promoting new musical talent (Ricard Live Music), supporting contemporary art (Ricard Foundation), protecting heritage (preserving the Camargue by sustainable tourism) and environmental protection (Ocean institute Paul Ricard) . Sustainability also through our new “Ricard plantes fraiches” made in local agriculture .
Sustainable development becomes the main strategic and economic topic and also a great opportunity to make great change to preserve Peace. Young people have already understood sustainable development stake. Goals cannot be reach without their active participation.

Groupe Roy Energy offers photovoltaic solar panels installation and maintenance services. Since our founding in 2016, we have constructed 1,400 solar installations. These installations produce an average 43 million kWh of green energy per year. For each 100 kWh of solar energy installed, around 52 tons of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG emissions) are saved—which adds up to a total of 22.36 million tons of GHG emissions saved per year since the beginning of Groupe Roy Energy. Furthermore, our clients are not only saving on GHG emissions but can also sell the green energy their installations produce back to the electric grid and make an economic benefit with it.
JCI encourages young people to be actively engaged in society and participate towards social and economic development, international cooperation, good-will and understanding. Our company is run by ambitious young people, and we see our main objectives as doing our part to contribute to both sustainable development and the economy. As of now, we are present in more than 24 different French departments and our objective is to be presented in each French department by 2025. In addition, we already have some clients in the Netherlands and Belgium and are looking to expand on a European basis in the following years. Most of our products are made by local manufacturers because we are convinced to invest in the European economy and in European projects. We truly feel that the European Congress here in Lyon, France, is a great and unique opportunity for all participants to discover new people, new cultures and establish and deepen international bonds (or maybe just “deepen collaboration” here?) within our European society.
The SDGs are at the core of GRE’s agenda, specifically SDG 7: “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable energy for all.” Our work contributes to increasing the overall share of renewables in final energy consumption, thereby decreasing our carbon footprint. In addition, we see our work contributing to SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth), SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities), SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), and SDG 13 (climate action). The generation of solar energy requires no combustion and therefore produces no greenhouse gas emissions. Still, other negative environmental externalities that arise when fossil fuels are produced, such as pollution, waste, changes to groundwater or surface water, possible harmful effects to fauna and flora, etc., do not occur with the generation of solar energy.
Because we—and the generations after us—are the ones who will have to live with the impacts from decisions made today. It is important that we stay educated and engaged on climate change and sustainable development, and do what we can to promote positive action and be the change we want to see in the world.

Les Brasseurs Savoyards is a French Craft Brewery based in Alby-sur-Chéran, on the border between Savoie and Haute-Savoie. All of the beers and softs that we produce are 100% organic. We try to create, develop and commercialize drinks on which we believe to improve the French Brewing landscape by sharing our values directly on the product. Nowadays, we are convinced that we need a better way of life, which particularly means for us an healthier consumption. Giving priority to organic raw materials cultivated within the territory is one of the choices that we made to provide a transparent traceability and the assurance for the consumer to drink local, responsibly, without useless additions onto the recipe.
This partnership makes sense for us for two reasons: first, we try to get involved as much as we can on what could increase the attractivity of the region. As kids from Annecy, the majority of our staff have a blast to see emerging more and more events the last few years and -obviously- more people visiting the area. The other reason is merely about ecological concerns, which can be connected to our desire to live better.
The Sustainable Development Goals coincide, on a large scale, with the objectives that we set for ourselves. To act globally, we believe that everyone must start making efforts on its own. Gradually, every effort will become a standard and will encourage skeptical people to jump on the bandwagon.
Younger people must firstly be aware about these SDGs, they got to know how important these objectives are for their future. Once they figure out, it is not necessary but essential to joint efforts, working together, to preserve and increase life on Earth. Attitudes need to change quickly, and the younger generation has to take the lead by gathering and acting on these issues.

It is an opportunity to transform our world. It combines economic growth with protecting the planet. It is also an opportunity to take into account social needs such as access to education, health, social protection, employment, while combating climate change and protecting the environment.
As a player specialised in the sales of airline tickets, we can act for the climate. By the end of 2019, we want to make the traveller responsible for his carbon footprint when choosing his flight (by displaying an estimate of the carbon footprint of his flight) AND offer him the opportunity to compensate the carbon emissions of his flight as a donation.
The sustainable development objectives of the United Nations are an intergenerational issue. They will be easier to reach if young people are involved now, especially since they will represent nearly half of the employees of companies by 2020. The Jeune Chambre Economique Française, which brings together Young Citizen Leaders, will play a key role. Members will take action within their territories on the different themes that will make it possible to respond to global challenges, particularly those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
