« Climate change, destruction of nature, aging of the population, new uses of housing and workspaces, inequalities, digitization… These major trends that are going through our society have a profound impact on our lives. »
Aware that the city of tomorrow is being built together, Icade is setting up numerous partnerships with its customers, local authorities, architects, start-ups and the academic world.
Aware that the city of tomorrow is being built today, in 2020 Icade decided to merge its CSR and Innovation teams with the ambition of providing answers to a fundamental question: how to repair the city?
These choices allow Icade to set ambitious goals and develop practical solutions for energy efficiency, low carbon or mixed use development, while building its vision on more complex subjects such as digital technology, soil protection and biodiversity or sustainable mobility. Thus, innovation makes it possible to develop in an agile way and now the solutions necessary for the essential transformation of our professions or to create new businesses.
Following the definition of its Purpose, having a "reduced carbon footprint" ambition, Icade has defined objectives for its 3 business areas aligned with a 1.5°C carbon trajectory validated by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi). This ambition is supported by a 2022-2026 investment program of 180 million euros.
Icade’s CSR strategy aims to accommodate new lifestyles and habits, meet local needs, accelerate the low-carbon transition and preservation of resources and develop employee skills, workplace well-being and diversity.
Icade is a pioneer of sustainable property development with buildings whose energy consumption, resource requirements and impact on the climate and biodiversity are reduced – guaranteed by the demanding certifications it is awarded.
Icade supports new practices with solutions that offer users both comfort and quality of life, and also strengthens its local impact with community-focused work to help the most vulnerable populations.
