ADEME's expertise is the fruit of a collective effort and shared visions:
  • arising from the practice of the agency's four vocations: developing knowledge, advising, convincing and assisting with implementation;
  • based on a diverse organisation: national central departments with an international outlook and regional divisions;
  • in contact with networks of stakeholders, their knowledge and practices.
This expertise is founded on a systemic approach to, as far as possible:
  • take account of all environmental and sustainable development related issues;
  • be based on technical as well as economic or financial and sociological elements;
  • integrate probable changes, identified during forward-looking discussions;
  • exploit all levers to aid decision-making.
This collective and cross-cutting approach to expertise ensures it is objective, impartial and scientifically neutral.
