Vexin Regional Nature Park

Vexin Français Regional Nature Park aims to preserve, restore and manage the biodiversity within its territory. Its work is dedicated to remarkable environments but also ordinary biodiversity, while the park houses several protected sites.
The Regional Nature Park is home to cutting-edge companies and laboratories which set up in very attractive conditions in business parks on a human scale surrounded by the natural environment.

Partnering Robotics

This 100% French SME, which was incubated in Val d’Oise, was the star of COP21 in Le Bourget with the presentation of its autonomous mobile robot “Diya One”, which purifies air and detects pollution in order to eliminate it. It thus purifies the air in construction firms, hotels and public spaces, which is 5 to 10 times more polluted than outside air. The SME relies on a valuable partner: Cofely Services, a subsidiary of Engie (formerly GDF Suez).

Close-up of a sector

Val d’Oise, a French department located in the Ile-de-France region, which generates half of the country’s turnover from eco-activities, has a number of assets for the development of eco-industries: the presence of leading group in traditional sectors, a high concentration of innovative SMEs, major public and private R&D clusters, and a wide range of business lines (consultancy, engineering, services).

Recycling and decontamination

Val d’Oise houses major environment-related facilities. The nano-filtration water treatment plant in Méry-sur-Oise (SEDIF) is the world leader in the production, treatment and distribution of drinking water sector. The Auror’environnement waste treatment and incineration plant in Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône (Veolia Propreté) has high-performance equipment, and the Plessis-Gassot biogas plant (Veolia-Dalkia-Clark Energy) is internationally recognised for its innovative processes in terms of waste reprocessing.

All eco-activities sectors are represented in Val d’Oise (waste, water, air, soil, energy). Extract-Ecoterres, a subsidiary of Vinci Construction France, which specialises in soil clean-up, has recently set up a European multimodal platform in Bruyères-sur-Oise, just like Biogénie Europe, a division of EnGlobe Corp (an internationally renowned Canadian group), which has invested €7 million and created 10 jobs for its new soil treatment centre. 300,000 tonnes will be biologically treated over a surface area of 4.5 hectares. Hytec Industrie, in Cergy- Pontoise, is an engineering company that specialises in the design and development of water treatment facilities.

Significant energy savings

Val d’Oise has a high concentration of extremely diverse SMEs and SMIs in environment- related areas, including in sectors of the future (consultancy firms, engineering, recycling of common and uncommon waste, recovery of metals, etc.). The territory is also home to leaders such as GDF Suez, which is setting up a wood heating system adopted by Aéroports de Paris ( Paris Airports Authorithy) to heat Roissy-CDG Airport.

Stakeholders in sustainable development

The Veolia training centre welcomes hundreds of trainees and over 10,000 interns at Jouy-Le-Moutier, in the Château d’Ecancourt area, and offers 16 professional qualifications ranging from vocational training certificates to Master’s degrees in water, cleanliness, transport, and energy.

The University of Cergy-Pontoise offers a Master’s in civil engineering «Smart buildings, energy efficiency».

This training, as well as the investments made by companies, households, and elected representatives, has become the daily responses and reactions to the increasing scarcity of resources and climate change.

Various different competitiveness clusters operate in the territory: Advancity (for sustainable cities and mobility), Mov’eo (for clean and smart vehicles and mobility) and Elastopole (for rubber and polymers).


The Paris and Ile-de-France region Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI Paris IDF) coordinates the “Éco’Durable” PLATO network in Val d’Oise, which enables SMEs and large enterprises with an interest in the sustainable economy to share their experiences and know-how.

It also runs the Network of Environment Managers (RME) in Val d’Oise and Yvelines. This network unites companies committed to environmental management around joint projects to anticipate regulatory changes and implement concrete environmental solutions.
