The building sector is at the forefront of France’s carbon neutrality objectives in 2050.
Limit its greenhouse gas emissions on the construction and life cycle of buildings, by considering the footprint, the materials and materials used, the choice of supplies and the entire upstream / downstream logistics chain until the construction, the optimization of the organization of the site, as well as the energy consumption of the buildings.
- By choosing bio-sourced or circular economy materials
- By pre-fabricating in the ‘off-site’ factory with 2D or 3D modular systems to allow a reduction in the number of transports on site.
- By favoring short circuit supply
- By using renewable energies from thalassotherapy and geothermal energy, photovoltaic and wind electricity, biomass boiler and heat pump
- By working on energy sobriety through renovation, bioclimatic design, thermal insulation.
Why is low carbon construction a priority?
In France, the building sector consumes 40% of final energy and is responsible for 21% of CO2 emissions.
‘Low-carbon’ construction, whether new or under renovation, represents only one percent of the €200 billion construction market in France. The new RE2020 environmental regulations in force since 2022 will make it possible to accelerate the availability of offers for sustainable buildings.
