Reuse – the fourth pillar of the circular economy
The idea of reusing materials resulting from renovation or demolition work is gaining momentum. It has to be said that it is very attractive since by reviving this age-old practice, there is indeed much to be gained – new means of recycling, low-cost materials, improved carbon footprint during activities, etc… The list is long. All that remains is to remove any barriers.

Innovative solutionsHave robotics already become a reality at all sites?
To combat global warming, France has committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050. Like France, many countries around the world have decided - by choice or environmental necessity - to turn to decarbonised electricity. In this quest for green energy, photovoltaics seems to have its full place, but is not the only viable solution. Incidentally, what is the status of its deployment potential?
Twenty billion euros per year. That's the potential of the energy renovation market in France, according to the consultants of Echos Etudes in their latest publication. What are we waiting for?
The COVID-19 pandemic, through the urban planning initiative of "coronavirus bike lanes", has highlighted the return of the bicycle to the city. In reality, this comeback has been under way for many years, though it did get a recent boost. What are the causes? What are the consequences on urban planning today? What will bicycles in cities look like ?
Rising to the environmental challenge posed by construction-site spoil, we have sought to offer a reliable, safe solution for optimising resources.
Are European car manufacturers poised to switch to all-electric? On 10 September, MEPs in Brussels gave their support for draft legislation setting a 45% reduction in CO2 emissions from cars and vans under 3.5 tonnes by the year 2030, with an intermediate target of 20% by 2025. A much more ambitious roadmap than that of the European Commission, which tabled plans for a 30% reduction by 2030.

Stéphanie Barrault, head of the Circular Design Experience project: applying all of the circular-economy principles to the construction sector
In France, the construction sector generates more than 40 million tonnes of waste every year and consumes large quantities of resources to meet the needs of renovation and new construction. A situation that contributes to threatening certain resources with scarcity, or even shortage, in the medium to long term. For example, this is the case with sand, of which the sector is a large consumer.
Not all cities are equal in the face of climate change. Some have published and committed to resilience strategies. Others are slow to take action ... or simply give up entirely.
