We also include environmental criteria in selecting our partners, and we take steps, with our main suppliers, towards improving their environmental performance.
The ISA (International Sustainability Alliance) is a global network of property industry stakeholders, made up of property developers, owners, occupiers and investors, all aware of the need to understand and retain control over requirements relating to the implementation of a sustainable development policy applied to the built environment.
ISA aims to finalise a benchmark for the main energy efficiency indicators (CO2 emissions, water and energy use) over the course of 2011.
Involvement today to prepare for tomorrow
Our staff are involved in think tanks set up by groups of industry experts.
By way of example, in France, we are involved in working parties on:
- establishing HQE benchmarks with CERTIVEA and QUALITEL
- the 'Plan Bâtiment Grenelle' , the building action plan within the French government-sponsored, multi-party environmental forum
- 'Green Building', tasked with coordinating environmental quality policies with international standards
