“Bosses are rarely carefree”continues Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux, who recalls that “when prices rise, we reduce our consumption”. According to him, the target of 10% “is a significant but absolutely essential effort”. “We are going to try, we are going to make an effort, everyone is in the same boat, we obviously have an interest in reducing our consumption”he summarizes.

“Limits” in the efforts to be made

Regarding the request made to companies not to heat their offices above 19 degrees this winter, as will be the case in public administrations, the President of Medef “does not see any particular problem”. “It will allow reductions”he adds. “But there are limits” in the efforts to be made, warns Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux, convinced that it is not “not possible to carpool everyone”.

“What we absolutely want to avoid is rationing or load shedding”, concludes the president of Medef. His concern corresponds to the watchword of the government for this return to school: “Chosen savings rather than forced rationing”.
