RESOURCES AND WASTE, COMMITTING TO A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Objective

Commit Cegereal to a circular economy throughout the life cycle of its portfolio

Cegereal has chosen to commit to a more global approach to limiting the use of resources throughout the real estate cycle, particularly within its own supply chain.

Achievements in 2018:

  • 7% reduction in the amount of waste produced in operating the buildings compared with 2017.
  • 100% of waste data collected since 2017, placing Cegereal amongst the most advanced players according to the figures published by the OID, which puts this indicator at 13%.
  • Selective waste sorting introduced at 100% of properties.

 

BIODIVERSITY, PUTTING LOCAL SPECIES FIRST

Objectives

  • Draw up a biodiversity management strategy for 100% of our portfolio
  • Ensure 100% of buildings have at least two habitats for the local fauna identified in flora/fauna studies (birdhouses, beehives, bat roosts, etc.)

The Paris Agreement resulting from the COP 21 Climate Conference aims to protect biodiversity against urban sprawl and preserve the Earth’s natural resources.

Cegereal has carried out an ecological study of flora and fauna at each of its sites and its corporate social responsibility initiatives are intrinsically linked. The cultivation of different plant species will help to reduce the impact of urban heat islands and heatwaves as well as noise pollution levels in urban environments.

Achievements in 2018:

  • Systematic integration of biodiversity issues across the entire portfolio through ecological studies.
  • Maintenance of 37,300 sq.m of green space across the portfolio, including a 4,800 sq.m lake at Hanami. Europlaza has a 3,000 sq.m wooded  arden and Arcs de Seine has a living roof covering its intercompany restaurant, as well as birdhouses and information boards devoted to  biodiversity. Hanami features a watercourse and a large vegetated area that greatly encourage biodiversity.
  • Setting of a target for local planted areas, namely that 50% of its properties have green spaces that are consistent with local flora by 2022.
  • Planting of numerous trees and bedded areas with shrubs and perennials at Europlaza and Hanami.

 

MOBILITY, ENCOURAGING LOW-IMPACT MOBILITY ACROSS OUR PORTFOLIO

Objective

Encourage the use of public and low-impact transportation (guides, displays, digital tools, etc.).

Cegereal is committed to facilitating the use of greener mobility solutions for its employees and tenants.

The environmental policy signed by all employees helps encourage the use of public transportation, bicycles and other non-motorized means.

The Group holds its meetings via videoconference whenever possible.

Achievements in 2018:

  • All buildings are located as close as possible to public transportation, with low-impact modes of transportation an average of less than 200 meters away.
  • 100% of Cegereal employees use public transportation to get to work.
