    • 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.

    • Greener construction, how to build greener?

      Across the world, nearly 200 m3 of concrete is poured every second. It is one of the most widely used industrial products - even more so than oil, especially in construction. In spite of its advantages in terms of land development, it is one of the major sources of CO2 emissions due to its cement content. How to build greener? About one billion tonnes of CO2 is released each year in the world by the cement industry. In the face of such global challenges and future changes in urbanisation, a revolution in construction methods is beginning. How can the construction sector commit to becoming more carbon-free? Can green building meet this challenge?

    • Will electrical cars be mandatory by the year 2030?

      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.

    • A motorway to reshape the Istrian peninsula

      Having carried out the design and construction of phases 1A, 1B and 2A of the Istrie motorway between 1997 and 2011, Bouygues Travaux Publics, an affiliate of Bouygues Construction, was selected to deliver phase 2B1 of the project, including the widening of the lanes to a 2x2 format in the toll road section between Rogovići in the west of the peninsula and Vranja in the east. This represents a further opportunity for the Group to participate in the region’s transformation and boost its economic momentum.

    • Objective: zero waste…

      Regulatory pressure is growing on how building and public works waste is processed. The sector produces 70% of waste in France (245 million tonnes, 46 million tonnes of which from the construction sector).
