Crédit Agricole Immobilier committed to sustainable construction
How to build tomorrow’s real estate while integrating economic, social and environmental aspects?
As part of the implementation of its CSR policy, Crédit Agricole Immobilier has committed to reducing its direct environmental footprint. Converting that ambition into action, Crédit Agricole Immobilier signed the Charter for the Energy Efficiency of Commercial Buildings in 2013, obtained ISO 50001 certification in late 2014 (for the Montrouge site and the Group’s Datacenter in Chartres) and received HQE Operation certification in 2015, scoring a “Very Good” rating in terms of construction, management and sustainable use (for the Montrouge site).
Through its four businesses – real estate development, property administration, facility management and the valuation of real estate assets – Crédit Agricole Immobilier plays a key role in energy efficiency. In 2015, 100% of its operations, whether involving extensive renovation work or the construction of new real estate, obtained at least one of the following types of environmental certification: HQE®, BBC, BREEAM, Effinergie or RT 2012. The company’s property operation processes for the 450,000 square metres it manages in Ile de France have received ISO 14001 certification.
To help reduce the carbon footprint of buildings during construction, Crédit Agricole Immobilier is a founding member of the BBCA organisation for low-carbon buildings launched in October 2015.
