For sustainable real estate
Covéa Immobilier is committed to a proactive and ambitious approach to improving the energy and environmental performance of its investment and operating assets.
Covéa Immobilier is committed to compliance with environmental standards and attentive to societal developments, and continuously adapts and takes concrete actions with regard to environmentally responsible real estate:
- Certification policy for major projects (BREEAM, HQE, BBC, etc.)
Since 2012, more than 170,000 m² of Covéa’s real estate assets have been labelled or certified (construction/renovation or operation). Over the same period, more than 95% of restructured tertiary buildings have been labelled or certified.
- Adherence to numerous sustainable development charters
Covéa Immobilier signed up to the Charter of the Circular Economy in Real Estate and Construction (the CircoLab Charter) in December 2017, to the Charter of the Sustainable Development Plan for tertiary buildings in September 2014, and to the Water Management Charter of the City of Paris in December 2013.
- Measurement and optimization of the energy efficiency of the building stock
Every year, Covéa Immobilier carries out a greenhouse gas assessment of its investment and operating assets, and it has a database that enables monthly monitoring of all the buildings’ consumption. Our experts carry out a regular audit of their energy efficiency and put action plans in place for those that are less energy-efficient.
- Energy transition and biodiversity
Covéa Immobilier’s Operations Department plays a major role in energy transition and preservation of biodiversity at the operating sites of the Group and its brands MAAF, MMA and GMF.
