The environment: a
major issue for CFE
The CFE group is not content just to
talk about sustainable development. It has a coherent environmental
policy and takes numerous practical measures, going beyond its
statutory obligations. Every day, CFE staff look for ever more
sustainable solutions for the projects being developed and
implemented in the group's various entities.
'Toward Zero Energy':
more relevant than ever
Reducing consumption of non-renewable
energy in the projects developed by the group is the main aspect of
the advisory work done by the sustainable development
In 2012, there was a major realisation
within the group that all public invitations to tender relating to
the construction of buildings contained passive or very low-energy
requirements. This was not the case two years ago, when such
criteria were rarely mentioned. The group has taken on board this
shift, and several group companies now have energy specialists.
This is a very positive development.
