31 influential figures
The Lab brings together a diverse range of thirty figures, including representatives of public institutions, association leaders, entrepreneurs and academics. All of them already play an active and clear role within their organisations in promoting biodiversity and climate action. The Lab is supported by Bertrand Badré (Blue like an Orange Sustainable Capital), Paul Polman (Unilever Foundation) and Nick Stern (London School of Economics). The One Planet Lab meets twice a year, including once during the One Planet Summit.

An operational task force
At the start of the One Planet Summit initiative in 2017, France piloted the Lab and hosted its task force. It consists of:
•    the One Planet Lab secretariat, which consists of experts from the French authorities;
•    a scientific secretariat, run by two French think tanks: the Institute for Climate Economics (I4CE) and the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI). This French task force closely follows and supports the initiatives of the working groups.
