Vinci 2020 Global Climate Challenge
The Conference of the Parties (COP21) will see more than 190 countries come together to decide how to limit global warming to 2°C by 2100.
The aim of the meeting is to reach a universal, global and binding agreement on climate change.
Every two years, VINCI holds its Innovation Awards. This competition is open to all 185,000 of the group's employees across around 100 countries, inviting them to share, promote and circulate their innovative ideas. The 2013 edition saw around 5,300 employees submit 2,075 entries. These innovative ideas reflect a state of mind within the VINCI Group. It is these very ideas that enable the group to excel when it comes to quality, safety and deadlines, and that place respect for the environment at the core of its activities.
In 2015, VINCI is adopting an open innovation policy, opening up its competition to students with practical, effective ideas to help protect our climate.
