The Shift Project’s Vice-President, Ms. Geneviève Férone, was awarded the Legion of Honor (France’s highest decoration) on July 14th. Bastille Day, the French National Day, is traditionally the occasion to receive people of extraordinary merits into the order. Mrs. Férone had already received the National Order of Merit in 2008.
Ms. Férone left her position as Sustainable Development Director at Veolia Environment earlier this year, and recently launched her own company, Casabee, a consulting firm specialized in sustainable territorial planning. We wish her the best of luck in this new adventure!
