Arnaud Florentin

Albert Einstein


Econometrist by training, after 10 years of experience in quantitative studies, Arnaud joined Utopies in September 2013 as manager of the "Local Footprint" department, whose goal is to help firms in measuring the economic impact of their activities, in order to, in particular, maintain their operating licences, to improve communication with stakeholders and to improve the environment in which they are evolving.


Arnaud has developed the LOCAL FOOTPRINT ® for Utopies, making it possible to conduct impact studies in more than 193 countries, on a national scale as well as on a local scale. The completed studies make it possible to precisely assess the direct, indirect and induced impacts of a business, a site or a project in terms of economic flow, jobs and public revenues. In addition, Arnaud supports teams on problems of quantitative studies (inquiries by stakeholders, leaders of opinion and consumers).
