Since joining LGI in 2017, he has been involved in assignments related to management and project set-up for R&D projects and clusters, in the fields of low-carbon energy and climate change adaptation and mitigation. Gilles started his professional career with junior positions in NGOs (India, Palestine), and has also worked at organisations such as the European Commission and the IRSN.

During (long) lunch breaks, Gilles can talk for hours about climate and social issues, so don't hesitate to run off to the coffee machine at the slightest opportunity.

Today, his favorite song is Da Funk – Daft Punk.

A former multi-award winning broadcast journalist, Suzi loves hosting innovation camps, webinars and creative workshops that advance progress on the Sustainable Development Goals.

For as long as he remembers, Vincent has been passionate about two things: the marvel of our physical and biological environment, and the magic of innovation arising from the human mind. After an academic training on environmental engineering at AgroParisTech, and a career start in the digital and water industries, Vincent founded LGI in 2005 with the idea to get involved in innovative projects supporting new low-carbon solutions. Since then, he has grown and guided the LGI team towards being a sustainable innovation specialty firm, reflected in its new statute as a purpose-driven company under French law.

Vincent enjoys lively conversations on nature, humans, society, technology and how they all interact to imagine brighter futures.

He loves folk and country music, and keeps going back to classics like Johnny Cash, Townes Van Zandt and Lee Hazelwood.

Coming from an engineering and research background, Yasmina has worked with international stakeholders from various university, industry, government and community organisations to deliver innovative solutions that fight today’s climate and sustainability challenges. Before joining LGI, Yasmina led the strategy for Monash’s Net Zero Initiative, using Australia’s largest university campuses as “living labs” to experiment with new models and inspire others to take on net zero emission journeys. She also led the development of next generation solar photovoltaics, and she holds a PhD in this exciting field.

At LGI, Yasmina works on cities’ net zero transitions, circular economy models and climate services, with a focus on sustainability, innovation strategy, and environmental and socio-economic impact assessments.

A tree lover and hugger, Yasmina is very passionate about the positive impact we can (/ should / must) have on our planet.

Today, her favourite song is: Bicycle Race – Queen.

Bon à savoir

Vous avez peut-être entendu parler de l'épique voyage annuel de team building de LGI, à Marseille, Valence, Ibiza, Lisbonne ou encore Montpellier... Ou vous avez peut-être eu vent des compétitions internes de LGI, comme le hackathon de l'innovation, le défi "zéro déchet", le club de débat à impact ou le concours de costumes d'Halloween. Et puis il y a les légendaires apéritifs de LGI, les barbecues sur le rooftop et la camaraderie générale entre collègues... La vérité est que c'est tout simplement fun d'être un LGIer.
