Sustainable cities and buildings

With the world’s population becoming increasingly urbanized (today, more than one human being in two lives in a city, but according to the UN, the proportion is expected to rise to one in three by 2050), the challenges of sustainable urban development are increasingly topical. Cities need to reconcile resource sobriety, respect for the environment, mitigation and adaptation to climate change while promoting “living together”. This ecological and energy transition in cities and regions is based on several fundamental points: the fight against urban sprawl (land use planning), the construction of infrastructure and buildings with a lower impact, the development of more responsible mobility solutions (public transportation, including cable transportation, “soft” mobility, recharging infrastructure for electric or hydrogen vehicles), the deployment of integrated urban services, the reintegration of nature into the city and controlled management of flows: water, materials, energy, including public lighting.

Eco-materials and biomaterials

1 Supplier(s)

Building infrastructure and buildings with a limited ecological or carbon footprint involves, among other things, choosing materials that have the lowest possible impact on the environment and climate and are safe for health. These 'eco-materials' may, for example, have been manufactured in less energy-intensive processes, contain a proportion of recycled material, etc. Among t...

Mobility

2 Supplier(s)

Sustainable mobility (or 'eco-mobility') covers travel solutions that limit air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions: public rail or road transport, bicycles, urban cable cars, funiculars, pedestrianized routes, etc. The challenge is to offer a balanced range of services between these different modes. In addition to the modes of travel themselves, eco-mobility covers the rela...
