As part of its ambition for zero single-use plastic by 2024, the municipality wants to accelerate the transition of private actors in Paris and ensure a lasting legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic Games on its territory. And this is thanks to an innovative initiative: the zero plastic certification, co-created with economic actors. It covers five key sectors: food, tourism, events, health/hygiene/beauty, and logistics.
The City is tackling the decluttering of public space with an innovative solution. This project, initiated in 2020 with an experiment, was extended in 2023 to cover the whole of Paris. An artificial intelligence (AI) system is used to create a geolocated database of signage panels (for pedestrians, bicycles, cars). Their characteristics, including their symbol, color, support, and ideogram, are automatically detected by AI algorithms. The objective is to reduce their number while maintaining consistent signage on the streets of Paris.
