Our goal is to promote sustainability in our buildings. To that end, we are implementing various measures to reduce CO2 emissions, improve the energy balance, optimize waste separation, and promote longer use of furniture.
Reducing vacancy is a major lever for greater sustainability, as this can lead to significant CO2 and energy savings. We are currently examining the future demand for office space and how we can make the best use of this space. This involves developing and testing new and more flexible space and office concepts.
Internationally, we are also implementing measures to reduce energy consumption, such as optimizing the energy efficiency of major sites, switching off advertising pylons at night, and carrying out simulation tests to identify energy-saving potential in technical buildings. We also have an energy-saving campaign to raise awareness among our employees.
