Your challenges

Making the ecological transition a driver of economic and environmental performance

The urban and industrial landscape is ever-evolving and construction projects are now subject to a variety of challenges. These challenges include resource scarcity, selecting environmentally friendly materials, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, raising public expectations concerning quality of life and adhering to new regulations.

 

To build infrastructure that responds to the challenges of the ecological transition, the construction and civil engineering industry - ranging from craftsmen and SME’s to multinational organisations have an opportunity to drive real change by becoming a key player in the circular economy.

 

This involves establishing "green" or "resourceful" construction sites that guarantee:

 

  • Everyone's safety
  • Compliance with regulations
  • Water, land and materials depollution
  • Traceability for waste, demolition debris, rubble and materials
  • Maximum recovery of materials, waste and soil (reuse, recycling, energy recovery)
  • Optimised energy and water use

 

"Green" construction worksites aim to contribute to improving the environmental and economic performance of construction sites.

1/3
of waste produced in Europe comes from construction and civil engineering.
70
%
is the target for the recovery of building and demolition waste set by the European Union for 2020.
30 to 40
%
This is the cost reduction made possible by sorting waste on-site.
