REDUCE, AVOID, OFFSET

Since the most virtuous CO2 is the CO2 that is never emitted, Groupe ALSEI has chosen to deploy a proactive, pragmatic policy to reduce its emissions as far as possible:

  • Eliminating single-use plastic
  • Using video conferencing to limit travel
  • Switching to green electricity
  • Reducing paper

ANTICIPATING STANDARDS AND PRACTICES

A long-lasting building must ensure the well-being of its occupants in the long term.

The Group’s creations meet the needs of both their immediate users and future generations.

This is why Groupe ALSEI has chosen the most demanding quality labels for its construction programmes: HQE, Minergie, BREEAM, BiodiverCity® etc.

– A FEW EXAMPLES OF OUR ACTIONS –

Groupe ALSEI aims to offset all travel by its employees. As part of this approach, 942 trees have been planted with Reforest’Action since June 2019.

To minimise the use of fossil fuels, we prioritise green energy suitable for the local context (solar, geothermal etc.).

Groupe ALSEI is gradually replacing its vehicle fleet with hybrid or all-electric models.

CONTROLLING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Every project is subject to pragmatic thinking about its environmental impact, focusing on reducing energy consumption and the carbon footprint and managing water and waste responsibly. 

The impact of a well-controlled construction site, the use of sustainable materials from environmentally friendly sources and design that allows reuse are all subjects and concerns that determine the choices made for each new project.

– A FEW EXAMPLES OF OUR ACTIONS –

Groupe ALSEI has chosen to use renewable and recyclable materials such as wood.

To avoid the need for air conditioning, DAVRIL and OPALE plan dual aspect homes and exterior blinds.

Groupe ALSEI’s programmes use local bio-based materials, such as bamboo and Japanese cedar in Réunion and timber products in mainland France.

BIODIVERSITY AT THE HEART OF OUR IDEAS

Biodiversity loss is now occurring more rapidly than at any other time in history. Many animal and plant populations are in decline, and though species disappearance is a natural process, human activity has undoubtedly accelerated the rate of extinction, to the extent that the current situation can be described as a major biological crisis.

To curb this slump, Groupe ALSEI creates biodiversity reserves in all its new projects by planting meadows, gardens and orchards and covering all free spaces, from roofs to terraces, with vegetation.

– A FEW EXAMPLES OF OUR ACTIONS –

ALSEI ENTREPRISE places a range of biodiversity remedies within its projects: nesting boxes, insect hotels, hives…

Low-impact modes of transport are prioritised: parking spaces dedicated to car sharing and electric vehicles, cycle paths…

Groupe ALSEI is always keen to set the example: green roofs, solar panels…

CREATING INNOVATIVE, COLLABORATIVE, WELCOMING SPACES

Needs and practices are evolving. The world of work now blends into people’s homes, and companies are providing relaxation areas that look more like libraries or living rooms than workspaces.

The blurring of the boundaries between professional and private life has led Groupe ALSEI to support these changes and include innovative experiences in its programmes to develop working spaces and services for users.

– A FEW EXAMPLES OF OUR ACTIONS –

The programmes dreamt up by DAVRIL and OPALE, Groupe ALSEI’s residential brands, put people with reduced mobility at the heart of the housing designs.

Always focusing on innovation, DAVRIL and OPALE offer a custom solution for connected equipment in all their homes.

ALSEI ENTREPRISE provides meeting places, hosts FabLabs in business premises, installs pop-ups in stores…
