As a local actor, the Municipality of Poissy has implemented national policies through the realization of the Agenda 21. The agenda was created between 2009 and 2011 and it took 3 years to be completely set up within the municipality and to carry out the first evaluations and improvements. Three committees have been set up to ensure its steering: 1) A policy committee, led by the municipal councillor for sustainable development, who gives the main inputs for reflection and submits its work to the steering committee; 2) A steering committee, chaired by the Mayor, who validates the work of the steering committee. It chooses the projects, determines the strategies, guides the consultations as well as the communication actions; 3) A technical committee, under the authority of the Director General of Services, responsible for validating  the  technical  feasibility  of  the  selected  actions,  proposing  complementary  actions  and accompanying the implementation of the projects decided upon. A fourth committee called the "Partnership Committee" brings together socio-economic partners in the territory wishing to participate in the elaboration and the implementation of the Agenda 21.
