Cycle Up: a digital platform dedicated to the reuse of building materials

Launched by Icade and Egis, this platform dedicated to the reuse of building materials involves participants from across the industry. Since its launch in 2018, CYCLE UP’s 451 transactions have made it possible to avoid more than 650 tonnes of waste (including 67 tonnes from projects led by Icade), cut CO₂ emissions by 4,499 tonnes and save buyers €6.1 million. Cycle Up also promotes professional integration through its partnership with Ares, a professional integration specialist responsible for transporting, selectively removing and warehousing building materials.


Committed and supportive employees

Consistent with its Purpose, Icade offers its employees the opportunity to get involved in local initiatives that promote more inclusive communities. Various initiatives encourage them to get involved in associations such as “Les jeunes talents de Plaine Commune” (Young talent from Plaine Commune), “Tous en Stage” (enabling students to carry out a week-long internship offering the opportunity to discover four different companies), “100,000 Entrepreneurs” (introducing young people to the concept of entrepreneurship), Pro Bono Lab (skills-based volunteering and sponsorship), etc.
