Could France’s green surge herald a business revolution?

Could Frances green surge herald a business revolution


Despite Coronavirus and the fact that turnout was down by over 10%, France’s recent local elections could still mark a seismic shift for France. The two rounds of elections have seen a wave of support for the green party Europe Ecologie Les Verts (EELV) and other eco-candidates, turfing out many mayors from Emmanuel Macron’s La République en Marche.

Could this be a reflection of the way lockdown has chimed with public sentiment on the climate - and could a new green agenda be good news for cleantech businesses in France?

Macron time

Local or ‘municipal’ elections in France take place every six years and allow any French residents with EU citizenship to elect local councillors and city mayors. In 2020, this has fallen roughly halfway through the term of President Emmanuel Macron.

If online shopping was doing well before the coronavirus pandemic, it’s certainly thriving now. Online-only businesses like BooHoo have reported massive spikes in profits, with people buying more online even as physical shops reopen. Meanwhile, many people who have been furloughed or lost their jobs are looking for new career opportunities that are viable in a post-corona age.

Enter Etsy. The online craft marketplace has been a major player for some years now, but the pandemic has seen its popularity swell. Numerous home businesses have used Etsy to create everything from protective masks, to homewares, to apparel for those venturing outside. With many people still reluctant to go out shopping, starting an online business using Etsy could be a safe and fulfilling business opportunity.
