ONE STAND, NINE ROUNDTABLES
Bouygues will be at Pollutec at Lyon Eurexpo from 12 to 15 October 2021.
Through one stand (Hall 4, allée J, Stand 178) and nine roundtables, the Group will outline the actions carried out by its construction businesses (Bouygues Construction, Bouygues Immobilier and Colas) in favour of the ecological transition. In particular, it will present the latest advances in terms of Climate strategy and the circular economy.
First roundtable: "Climate: what solutions for the Bouygues group's construction subsidiaries?" When? Tuesday 12 October at 3pm
Fabrice Bonnifet, Group Sustainable Development & QSE director, the keynote speaker at this first roundtable, said: "In this current ecological and climate emergency, I am delighted that Pollutec, this great event for environment and circular economy professionals, has given us the opportunity to present our customers with the solutions that we have designed to help them improve their carbon footprint and impact on the environment".
The construction sector is the source of over 25% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Bouygues has therefore rolled out a Climate strategy to cut its own emissions. Two types of solutions underpin this strategy: those addressing the emissions generated by its construction businesses (plant, materials, etc.) and those addressing the emissions generated by the operation of the structures it builds (reduction of energy consumption, renewable energy production).
Second roundtable "Deconstruction and rehabilitation: how to limit land take?"
When? Tuesday 12 October at 3.55pm
Continued urbanisation, which is leading to more and more greenfield sites being lost, is a major threat to the environment and biodiversity. Some of the main solutions dealing with this are: the reversal of land take, deconstruction with re-use of materials and in-place soil decontamination. The redevelopment of brownfield sites (investment in derelict land, deconstruction with re-use of materials) is a major driver to limit this increasing urbanisation. This requires sustainable soil decontamination.
