The Value of Sustainable Real Estate for the Development of the Circular Economy
To increase efficiency and reduce consumption:
all businesses are called upon to build
regenerative production models.
We are committed to designing an innovative circular paradigm for construction
«Current use of resources means that by 2050 we will need three planets to meet our needs». The EC, through its Green Deal and Action Plan for a Circular Economy, has defined principles and methods on how sustainability should be integrated from design to production, and the consumer.
Within the EC’s Action Plan, seven key intervention areas have been identified to achieve a circular economy capable of regenerating materials and contributing to combat climate change.
For example the construction and building sector is responsible for 50% of extracted raw materials and 35% of generated waste. Circular economy has various applications: reuse of materials, recycling and sharing, with adaptable and flexible spaces.
To facilitate products that contain secondary raw materials and derivatives, we rely on Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), which clearly describe their environmental impact. These declarations follow a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) analysis that examines the production processes.
In this way, the circular economy is integrated into our operational model and corporate social responsibility.
Doing more and better with less material and more renewable energy, while limiting the environmental, social, and economic impact of our projects, is what we do and what we believe in. This is what we do. This is what we believe in.
