The Bel Air business park in Les Taillades and the Hauts Banquets business park in Cavaillon have been awarded the "Parc +" and "Parc engagé" labels, and LMV has been awarded level 2 of the "Territoire engagé - Une COP d'avance" label.

Developing the region and promoting its economic attractiveness while respecting sustainable development are the daily challenges faced by LMV Agglomération's elected representatives and staff.

On Monday November 13, 2023, this long-term effort was rewarded with three regional distinctions at the annual Convention de Maires de la Région SUD held in Marseille, in the presence of Gérard Daudet, President of the Agglomération.

First and foremost, LMV's services were awarded level 2 of the "Territoire durable - Une Cop d'avance" label, in recognition of the concrete, cross-functional actions implemented in and by inter-municipal services (waste management and recovery, promotion of Zero Plastic, energy savings, etc.). This distinction, awarded for the period 2023-2025, also underlines the progress made by LMV, which in 2020 was awarded level 1 of the same label.

Our Hauts Banquets business park in Cavaillon, developed by the Faubourg Promotion group, was also recognized as a "Parc engagé", while the Bel Air intercommunal business park in Les Taillades was awarded level 1 of the "Parc +" label. In both cases, the ARBE Région Sud jury emphasized the quality of the developments and the environmental performance (water management, landscape and urban integration, building autonomy, etc.) of these two business parks.

In addition to rewarding our work, these labels also enable us to enrich our sustainable development policy and build an ever more virtuous region. On November 9, the Agglomération won the "Territoires d'industrie" award for the 2nd time. This scheme recognizes our industrial potential and enables companies who choose our territory to obtain financial and engineering resources to carry out projects in favor of sustainable development, such as AMOEBA, winner of the France 2030 program for the construction of its USIBIAM plant.

A few words about Luberon Monts de Vaucluse Agglomération

Located between Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, in the heart of the Luberon region, the Luberon Monts de Vaucluse Agglomération covers 16 communes, some of which are ranked among the most beautiful in the Vaucluse region, and even in the world! This human-scale territory, built around its central town of Cavaillon, boasts a renowned and attractive living environment.

Gordes and Lourmarin, the jewels of the Luberon, are ranked among France's most beautiful villages. Oppède-le-Vieux is recognized as a "Remarkable Heritage Site". They are proud to be recognized for their exceptional heritage and unique atmosphere.

Our villages are unique in that they are either perched or backed by the Luberon and Monts de Vaucluse massifs. All are set in a landscape of olive groves, vineyards, Mediterranean forests and orchards. Each viewpoint is unique, offering panoramic views of the most famous massifs in the south of France: the Luberon, Mont Ventoux, the Dentelles de Montmirail, the Alpilles, and sometimes the Sainte Victoire in Aix-en-Provence.

Each Luberon village, an integral part of the Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon, has preserved its historic heart and characteristic architecture.

Ideally located close to rail and motorway links (A7 and A9), the intermunicipality also benefits from a privileged geographical and tourist location within the SUD Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur region. In short, LMV Agglomération is an area with an exceptional natural and cultural heritage, yet at the gateway to the region's major metropolises and economic crossroads.
