    The challenges related to climate resilience

    The climate crisis is provoking the emergence of new challenges for industries and governments, pushing them to rethink their operating systems and business models, and to develop specific roadmaps to cope with current and future climate hazards and their impacts.

    As this crisis and its multiple consequences are expected to intensify in the coming years, it is becoming essential for any organization aiming to ensure its sustainability and take action for the environment to properly understand the multiple challenges that arise from it:

      How we support you in your projects related to climate resilience 

      Alcimed supports its clients in various energy and environmental challenges, particularly those related to climate resilience and adaptation to environmental changes. We regularly undertake missions with diverse stakeholders in these areas, including energy and environmental industry players (Suez, Veolia, EDF, Orano, RTE, etc.), cosmetics companies (L’Oréal, Chanel, etc.), aerospace and defense industry players (Safran, Airbus, Thales, Dassault Aviation, etc.), healthcare companies (Sanofi, Moderna, Pfizer, etc.), as well as national and European research institutions and centers (such as Carnot institutes or SATTs).

      The diversity of our clients, the geographical areas we explore, and the types of projects we undertake provide us with a global and in-depth understanding of climate-related issues and challenges. Our projects cover a wide range of topics, including the development of climate roadmaps, energy transition strategies, market opportunity assessments, studies of the most resilient solutions and strategies to climate hazards, launching innovations, identifying academic or industrial partners, and much more!

      Examples of recent projects carried out for our clients in climate resilience

      • Creation of an innovation roadmap for adaptation and climate resilience for an environmental player

        The strategy and innovation department of one of our clients wanted to develop its innovation roadmap on the theme of climate change adaptation and climate resilience for the period between 2024 and 2027.

        Our teams supported them in this project by investigating four target markets to determine the extent to which these topics should be considered in their roadmap, taking into account potential applications, market opportunities, new business models that could be developed, necessary developments and investments, and the role our client could play in these markets.

        Following the strategic and prospective analysis of these four markets, a robust and credible climate adaptation and resilience roadmap was developed.

      • Benchmark on the sustainability and resilience of the industrial system for a player in the aeronautics industr

        One of our clients in the aerospace sector aimed to increase the sustainability and resilience of its industrial system by considering all environmental dimensions of its activities (scope 1, 2, and 3) beyond their carbon impact. We assisted them in the development of environmentally sustainable factories that are more energy-efficient, water-efficient, and resource-efficient, without compromising on economic efficiency.

        To achieve this, our team identified the most advanced players in these areas to understand how they approach these challenges, how they prioritize improvement areas, what strategies they explore (such as low-tech solutions, water management, etc.), and how they have organized themselves internally to effectively address this strategic issue.

        We complemented this benchmarking exercise by identifying key academic actors in this field and proposed an action plan to our client based on the insights gained from this study.

      • Opportunity study to protect a mobility player from climate-related hazards

        A mobility actor initiated a project aimed at developing a new solution to better mitigate climate-related risks and improve the collection and utilization of rainwater.

        Our teams challenged and strengthened the initial assumptions made by our client’s teams. We then identified and characterized existing solutions, while also evaluating the interest of potential target audiences.

        Our report allowed us to select the most promising market segments, which we further characterized by examining current practices, needs, weaknesses, and conducting tests to assess the value proposition of our client and the willingness of industry stakeholders to invest.

      • Study for a pharmaceutical laboratory on the environmental impacts of clinical studies and best methods for their optimization

        We worked on rethinking the clinical trials of a healthcare actor in order to limit their environmental impacts.

        To achieve this, our teams first estimated the six main environmental effects of clinical trials after identifying and modeling the standard stages of such trials, including drug and personnel transportation, accommodation, waste management, devices, and data. Next, we modeled traditional scenarios to quantitatively evaluate their respective environmental footprints and identify the key contributors. To do so, we developed an interactive tool that calculates these impacts based on various environmental endpoints such as carbon footprint, water impact, biodiversity, and more.

        Finally, based on this analysis, our teams were able to recommend the best ways for the client to optimize the transformation of clinical trials from an environmental perspective. We also provided a communication plan to facilitate the internal and external dissemination of these changes.

      • Prospective study on the evolution of automotive waste by 2035

        In the context of the transition to electric mobility, we supported an environmental actor specializing in the collection of automotive waste to help them anticipate the impact of this transition on their business.

        A comprehensive prospective analysis of the automotive market, the objectives of manufacturers, suppliers, garages, collection sites, and recycling facilities, as well as the current regulations, allowed us to estimate the evolution of the typology and volumes of waste that our client will have to manage by 2035. We also analyzed the value chains associated with battery production, identified potential recyclable products, and assessed the role of various stakeholders (such as gigafactories and new production units established by manufacturers).

        This analysis enabled us to help our client adjust their positioning in this emerging market.

      • Anticipation of the challenges and regulations associated with the circular economy in the aeronautics sector

        We worked with a player in the aeronautics sector that wanted to improve its organisation and prepare for the challenges of the circular economy.

        Our team began by mapping out all the existing regulations and directives at French and European level. We then carried out a benchmark study of companies in industries that are more advanced in this area (automotive, naval, etc.) to explore the initiatives taken by other players.

        This study enabled our customer to gain a better understanding of the issues at stake, and above all the key success factors to be taken into account in terms of research, internal organisation and interaction with its ecosystem (suppliers, partnerships, etc.), with a view to anticipating future developments.

      • Study of innovative carbon-neutral city initiatives for a car manufacturer

        In the context of the objectives of carbon neutrality by 2050, our team assisted a car manufacturer’s R&D team to analyse the strategies adopted by European cities to achieve carbon neutrality.

        This involved an in-depth study of the main trends observed in the hundred or so cities selected by the EU as part of the ‘Smart and Carbon Neutral Cities’ Mission. We explored the various initiatives, whether technological, methodological, partnership-based or regulatory, that have already been put in place or are in the pipeline on the theme of climate and digitalisation.

        As a result, our client was able to gain an overall understanding of the emerging trends around smart cities and the most innovative initiatives being implemented by European cities to achieve their carbon neutrality objectives, and thus adapt its research and development strategy on the continent.
