Helene TEULON,
Founder Gingko 21

Hélène Teulon, Alumni from Ecole Polytechnique, PhD in Industrial Organization (Mines ParisTech), developed skills in LCA and ecodesign when working as soon as 1992. She supervised the development of one of the first LCA software, and managed from Detroit (Michigan, USA) the first LCA study of a complete car in the world.  She founded Gingko 21 in 2005 to support companies in the transformation of their offer through eco-innovation. She published the « Guide de l’éco-innovation » which details the OpenGreen eco-innovation method. Hélène Teulon is committed to the emergence of a circular economy, she is involved in the implementation of industrial symbiosis networks. She performs LCA critical reviews, and teaches at Ecole Polytechnique.

Ecodesign data matching: artificial intelligence applied to Ecodesign

For Florent, a passion: understand everything about the environmental impacts of products.

Engineer in design, trained at INSA Lyon, specialized in Eco-design at the Arts et Métiers ParisTech, he had advised industries for 5 years on reducing their impacts on climate change, water pollution or ‘resource depletion. In 2014, Florent understands that it is time for companies to communicate about the LCA they carry out. It develops VisuaLCA, a datavisualization & data-matching software to unlock the full power of the Life Cycle Assessments.

He is currently professor of Ecodesign & LCA at Grenoble Alpes University. He works as researcher at G-Scop lab on LcA Results chOice Maker project. He transmits his “green fiber” to students of EM Lyon, IAE, Polytech Savoie, UCP & Besançon university for several years with innovative learning methods: the Ecodesign challenge.
