L’action publique environnementale et le New Public Management en régime de croisière

Abstract : This paper explores the Plan Bâtiment, a parastatal agency created after the Grenelle de l’environnement round-tables by the national government, which organizes policy discussions with real estate professionals. It questions the making of environmental rules in a context where New Public Management (NPM) has become the default option for public policy, and analyzes the main features and effects of this regime. Firstly, the Plan Bâitment, itself a product of the implementation of New Public Management precepts, supports a continuous NPM-inspired critique of the state. Secondly, this regime is further entrenched as it welcomes a policy entrepreneur seeking to promote NPM. Thirdly, this regime paves the way for the routine importation of interests and recommendations emanating from professionals for whom a designated arena is henceforth assured. Lastly, the political-administrative apparatus is all the more benevolent towards such recommendations since, as the current default option, NPM-inspired injunctions and concrete mechanisms guide the day-to-day making of environmental rules.
