Derek Kehoe, CEO and Head of County BNP Paribas presented JCDecaux with the award for minimising the impact of our day-to-day activities on the environment, something that is crucial to JCDecaux’s global sustainable development strategy.

Speaking at the event, Stéphane Crouzat - the French ambassador to Ireland and honorary president of the FICC - stated that “the Ireland-France Business Awards reward French and Irish companies that contribute to the vitality of exchanges between our two countries. In the current international context, France and Ireland continue working together to reinforce our bilateral relation, strengthen the European Union and the European project.
Joanne Grant, Managing Director of JCDecaux Ireland said “winning this award is a fantastic recognition of our efforts both in Ireland and within our wider company group to adhere to the policies of sustainable development and reduce the impact our activities have on the environment. The reduction of energy consumption, promoting the use of green energy solutions and providing innovative products and services – such as the Just Eat dublinbikes scheme - all contribute to this.”

Services group Sodexo won the award for best French company in Ireland and mobile top-up platform Ding. com won the award for best Irish company in France.
