Metz and Strasbourg agencies commited to the environment
Metz and Strasbourg commercial agencies (North East of France) recently received their ISO 14001 certification*. This program will be pursued in all agencies in France.
«When you come to think about an environmental certification, the issue is not only about industrial waste!» explains Gilles Simon, project manager for the sites certification.
Tertiary sites are also important natural resources consumers. They use energy, water, oil... «We need to manage environmental issues as a whole. And, with the help of our energy efficiency strategy, we need to reduce energy consumption in our offices.»
After commercial agencies, other tertiary buildings will implement a system to manage environmental impacts.
