More than ever, the construction sector must deal with societal, social and environmental challenges. We have chosen to rise to these challenges on a daily basis at every stage of our projects. Therefore, sustainable construction is at the heart of our strategy.
On the global level, the construction sector represents 40% of the consumption of natural resources, energy consumption, CO2 emissions and product waste. Therefore, in addition to speeches, taking sustainable development into account is obvious and a responsibility issue that must be used to achieve our goal: shaping a better life. This is why we have made the strategic choice of making this commitment a top priority for our company and among our employees. Thus, since 2007, we have launched a policy shared by all of our business units supported by the management: Actitudes.
4 key areas, 12 commitments
In order to take all aspects of sustainable development into account and influence all stakeholders, we focuse on 4 key areas:
- environment and sustainable construction,
- customers and partners for a sustainable project,
- local commitment and community aid,
- development of employees.
In total, these strategic key areas include 12 commitments: innovating for sustainable construction, committing to ethics and compliance, contributing to local development, ensuring equal opportunities, etc. In practical terms, this policy is translated into actions carried out by all of our activities and in all of our projects, from the design stage through to operation.
Regardless of their profession or position within the company, everyone of our employees is a key link in our sustainable development process. Everyone, through their behaviour, takes action on a daily basis to comply with our commitments. Devised to instil genuine cohesion among our employees, Actitudes is also a stimulating collective adventure for all. Finally, as a vector of innovation, it creates value for our customers who can thereby benefit from a vision of construction that today meets the challenges of tomorrow.
