LILLE GRAND PALAIS incites all stakeholders on Low Carbon Events

1. Organizational Governance

Relations with stakeholders


LILLE GRAND PALAIS (59) rents spaces for congresses, exhibitions, professional events and performances and organizes events (about 300 events per year).
An enterprise with 88 employees, Lille Grand Palais cares about the environment. Since 2008, it has placed Sustainable Development at the heart of its strategy. For the responsible development of its activities, LILLE GRAND PALAIS anticipates regulatory requirements by minimizing its impact on the environment.


  • Reduce environmental impact and offer clients products and services that respect the environment
  • Engage with partners in responsible ecology


Over the last 15 years, with an activity where the ephemeral often takes precedence over the durable, Lille Grand Palais continuously pursues a strategy based on innovation to reduce the environmental impact of its activities. It has also developed an advanced social responsibility policy for all its employees. In addition to the imperatives of profitability and customer satisfaction, it has adopted ambitious projects of general public interest, as befits its status as a Societe Anonyme d’Economie Mixte (mixed economic public company).
