  • How can we develop and build in the context of “Zero net artificialisation” ?

    23,000 hectares: this is the average annual area of natural, agricultural or forest land reallocated to urbanisation in France over recent years, the equivalent of 2.2 times the area of Paris, 33,000 football pitches or 19 million parking spaces. A figure which makes France one of the worst European students with regard to restraining real-estate development. The impact on biodiversity and CO2 emissions are such that there is an urgent need to hold back this effect. Although the target of Zero net artificialisation (ZAN) was written into the national biodiversity plan in July 2018, the strategy, method and means of bringing this into reality remains to be specified. Likewise the search for a denser, viable and liveable urban development model in large conurbations as well as town centres and small and medium-sized towns.

  • Worksites made more sustainable with recycled concrete

    Building and Civil Works generates 250 million tonnes of waste per year. Today, only 40% of this waste is reclaimed, yet the Energy Transition Act imposes a threshold of 70%, to be reached by 2020. Transitioning from a traditional, linear economy toward a circular economy means entirely rethinking how we manage a worksite's materials in order to produce in a more sustainable and sensible way.
