It is a story of a very opportunistic girl who works for a big consulting firm and wants to run a new service on sustainability. To convince her CEO, she transforms into green, and she gets the job. Eventually everything goes wrong and the end is not like in a fairytale. The goal of this novel is to demonstrate that sustainability could be a thematic of novel, could be funny and not moralistic.
It was translated into Italian “Emilie, ecologista in carriera”, by Edizione Ambiente in Milan, launched in 2008.
It received very good critics in Le Monde, Liberation, and did some TVs. The rights of the book were bought by a producer and an adaptation for a movie will be made.

Quote from “Ly green lifestyle” :
This book is an investigation led into the world of luxury and sustainable development, with a great number of experts’ testimony. It includes interviews with Sylvie Bernard (LVMH), Alain-Dominique Perrin (Richemont), Laurent Claquin (PPR), Jerôme Schehr (Shangri-La), Julie El Ghouzzi (Le Centre du Luxe et de la Création), Erwan le Louer (Jem), Valentine Gauthier, Alice Audouin (Havas Media), Sylvain Lambert (PricewaterhouseCoopers), Elisabeth Laville (Utopies)… In short, more than fifty testimonies from the greatest luxury houses but also from the more “confidential” houses, which are making or will make tomorrow’s luxury and sustainable development.
“Luxe et Développement Durable, La nouvelle alliance” aims to answer the question: how can the luxury industry systematically integrate sustainable development? Not militant, but pragmatic, constructive and optimistic, we particularly loved the journalistic approach: first the current situation, then the sector’s first answers, and finally recommendations and outlooks.
In a world that tends to oppose, in principle, luxury (triviality, superficiality, ostentatiousness, etc.) and sustainable development (frugality, sobriety, etc.), we have always been convinced of their common DNA: the know-how, high quality, and craftsmanship, among other things… And it is precisely this common ground and the opportunities that flow from it that the book explores.
