Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Infrastructure, Environment and Town Planning, and Frédéric Genta, Interministerial Delegate in charge of Digital Transition, officially launched the “Carbon Coach Pact” on Tuesday, September 29.

This Pact was developed in close collaboration between the energy and digital partners. The idea is that individuals can measure and reduce their environmental impact using the latest digital tools.

“The National Pact is not a rigid tool. It adjusts and evolves over time and as needs arise. We adapt and optimise it so that it is as close as possible to reality, the expectations of members and the latest digital developments, “said Marie-Pierre Gramaglia in particular.

For his part, Frédéric Genta said that it is impossible to imagine energy and digital transition separately.

Julien Vidal, Founder of the eco-citizen movement “It begins with me” presented the “Ambassadors of the National Pact” Program, of which he is the coach.

The 10 first Ambassadors of the National Pact, who spent two hours with Julien Vidal at the end of the event, will become the “spokespersons” for the energy transition initiatives of the Principality. Their role: to embody the Pact with their colleagues and their community, with the active support of Energy Transition Mission, which will provide them with training, workshops and follow-up.

Reducing emissions “very relevant” to Monaco

Julien Vidal has drawn attention to the fact that reducing emissions is a task with particular relevance to Monaco.

Addressing a press conference at the Monaco Yacht Club, held to launch the Carbon Coach Pact on Tuesday, he said that according to Oxfam the wealthiest one percent of the world’s population is responsible for 50 percent of carbon emissions.

Waving his hand in the direction of Port Hercule and a row of super yachts, he said: “When you look out of the window you can see that this is very relevant to Monaco.”
