Our sustainable development approach
Property is currently at the very centre of the social, energy, and environmental issues raised by our era and lifestyle. It is an expression of our living conditions, and of our ability to live well together. As a major player in the property sector, Icade therefore has a key role to play in imagining, designing and building sustainable properties for lasting, human-scale cities.
Buildings are at the heart of sustainable development
In France, buildings are responsible for 43% of energy consumption and one-quarter of greenhouse gas emissions. They are implicated in water consumption, the treatment of waste water and waste, urban mobility and home-work transport. Finally, they are a key aspect of our society by their economic, social, societal and human dimensions: work, housing, public facilities, living conditions and environment and social and intergenerational diversity.
Icade's action in favour of balanced urban ecosystems
A major property player thanks to its wide range of businesses, Icade's vision and global command of projects and programmes commit it to developing a balanced urban ecosystem and sustainable, responsible property. We are committed to creating synergies between our stakeholders – customers, government and local authorities, partners, users and residents, to experiment and implement urban property solutions that translate sustainable development into facts
