Two thousand business leaders challenge the candidates for the presidential election. They publish a “Manifesto for the economy of tomorrow”, and call for new “rules of the game”, which would put the climate, biodiversity or even social justice at the center of the issues. Eco guest of franceinfo, Eva Sadoun, co-president of the Impact France movement, and initiator of this manifesto, affirms that she wants “take companies out of premium and vice“.
“Today, it is cheaper for a company to outsource jobs (…) and it is cheaper for a company to pollute“, she explains: “What we are proposing is to put in place a tax system that will help them“. The manifesto details the principle of a bonus-malus for companies.
We want taxation to be indexed to real ecological and social impacts. It can be done if you have a compass.Eva Sadoun, co-president of the Impact France movement
The employers’ club proposes the creation of a “social and ecological index“, on the model of the index for professional equality “that measures the inclusion of women“.The index would embed”the cost of biodiversity, the ecological impact“.
According to Eva Sadoun, who has just published An economy of our own (Actes sud), the movement thought “sectoral transition policies“, while working “on finance, tech, food, textiles” and “by defining standards by sector of activity, with a policy of inclusion and sobriety“.
