Montpellier’s goals to promote industry
Fully aware of the major issues facing our planet, along with economic transformations, Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole assists the territory’s companies and stakeholders to help them meet the societal challenges of today and tomorrow. We create favorable conditions supporting an industry that is moving towards global performance at economic, ecological, and social levels for present and future generations. This goal is driven by a collective strategy: Montpellier, Positive Industry
