Safety Line Took Part In COP21 And Introduced OptiClimb To The World

The French capital mobilized for the climate

France hosted the 21st Session of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) from 30 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris. The purpose of this conference was to achieve a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C.

Number of events took place at different locations in Paris, such as Le Bourget Exhibition Park and the national historic site Le Grand Palais.

Thanks to its partnership with Climate-KIC, a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) dedicated to Climate, Safety Line took part in the COP21 which gathered 195 signatory States of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) and more than 40 000 participants.

It was the opportunity to present OptiClimb, a solution which optimizes the flight climb profile and thus reduces the airliners’ fuel consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions. OptiClimb therefore perfectly matches environmental issues that COP21 was –and still be – concerned about.

Towards more sustainable aviation

Today, aviation accounts for more than 2% of global CO2 emissions. As the aviation sector is continuously growing, eco-friendly solutions must be adopted to develop sustainable air transport in the long term.

In this context, Climate-KIC organized a conference at the Grand Palais Wednesday 9 December 2015 and invited key actors from the aviation industry to share their breakthrough innovations regarding airports, airplanes technology and fuels. Pierre Jouniaux, Safety Line’s CEO, introduced OptiClimb to the public. So did the other speakers such as Air Liquide, KLM and Aerospace Valley with their solutions.

For a more eco-friendly World, the attendees came to the conclusion that “there is no competition between all these solutions” They all agreed on one point: “We should all work together to reduce the maximum CO2 emissions”.

Key political figures & business leaders showed interest in OptiClimb

Safety Line had the pleasure of welcoming Pierre Gattaz, the President of the main pro-business organization in France, and Michel Sapin, the French Minister of Finance, at its booth in the Gallery of Solutions – Paris Le Bourget. Both showed great interest in Safety Line’s fuel efficiency’s solution, OptiClimb.
