The symposium was organised by the Chair Energy & Prosperity chair in cooperation with Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School, Institut Louis Bachelier and the World Bank. It was hosted by École Normale Supérieure.
The purpose of this article is to reformulate a clear and in-depth state of knowledge provided by a thermo-evolutionary perspective of the economic system. It is shown that during the entire human history, energy has been central to direct the successive phases of technological change and economic development.
In their response, experts associated with the Chair emphasize the predominance of accounting standards over non-financial information to guide corporate strategies. Accounting is not neutral, and the fact that it does not integrate human and natural capital is a major obstacle to achieving the EU's sustainability objectives.
The Chair Energy and Prosperity organizes an international workshop on sustainable mobility on December. Subscription are open.
