Agreement between unions and employers to facilitate the ecological transition in business


The agreement must in particular make it possible to “identify levers of change within the framework of an enlightened social dialogue on the ecological transition” and to “integrate environmental issues into collective negotiations”.

Employers' organizations and several unions have concluded a national interprofessional agreement intended to facilitate the consideration of ecological transition issues in companies, we learned on Wednesday from the Medef.

This agreement is “

a valuable and useful, effective, operational roadmap for the social partners to be able to consider and accelerate the ecological transition within companies and branches as well as in the territories

”, declared Tuesday evening the representative of Medef Hubert Mongon, leader of the negotiation which lasted nine months.

The document is "


" and does not include any new advances in terms of the rights of employees or their representatives, we learned from concordant sources.

In a "

particularly complex

" social context, "

we are once again able to demonstrate the full effectiveness of social democracy and the ability of the social partners to dialogue effectively over a long period of time and on major social issues

", s'' is congratulated Hubert Mongon.

Integrating environmental issues into negotiations

The Medef representative, who negotiated on behalf of all the representative employers' organisations, specified that this national interprofessional agreement (ANI) was now open for signature by trade unions and employers' organizations until 24 April and had already received favorable opinions from the CFDT, the CFTC and Force Ouvrière, as well as a “

still reserved

” position from the CFE-CGC, the CGT “

not having wished to be associated with this agreement


It is “

a text which reorganizes the information intended for actors in companies and professional branches so that they take hold of the subject

”, explained Luc Mathieu, the CFDT negotiator.

The agreement must in particular make it possible to “

identify levers of change within the framework of an enlightened social dialogue on ecological transition

” and to “

integrate environmental issues into collective negotiations


Among the practical actions envisaged, "

training of staff representatives in environmental matters

", an "

employee mobility plan to optimize employee travel

" or even "

partnerships with NGOs and associations

" "

Before attacking a text that would be binding beyond what the law provides, let us try to ensure that everything provided for by law already applies in companies, because that is not the case today.

We are very, very far from the mark

, ”explained Luc Mathieu.
