Quadrilatère is committed to implement an eco-responsible policy within its company and aims to develop this approach within its projects.
Quadrilatère carried out its first carbon assessment in 2021, on all the goods, services and activities operated by the company (3 scopes). As we suspected, our construction sites represent 96% of our GHG emissions. On the strength of these conclusions, and in partnership with our consulting firm BL Evolution, Quadrilatère’s internal CSR committee is now working to define a real strategy for reducing our emissions.
At the same time, Quadrilatère being convinced that every gesture counts, the company continues to limit the use of the plane for the business trips of its employees and to encourage soft mobility.
Within its premises, Quadrilatère has implemented a number of actions aimed at reducing its consumption of paper, water and electricity.
In order to reduce its waste as much as possible, the company is equipped with durable dishes, 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers. Coffee and tea are purchased in bulk. For the management of its internal waste, Quadrilatère calls on Tricycle Environnement, which collects its disposable masks, coffee grounds and paper/cardboard.
Since March 2022, Quadrilatère has extended its contract with Tricycle to the reuse of its construction waste. Differentiated bins are installed on site at each start of construction to collect scrap metal, plastic, ordinary industrial waste, electrical and electronic waste, cardboard/paper, rubble, wood, plaster and tiles.
For its projects, Quadrilatère recommends the use of natural and eco-responsible materials, from clean industry or from the recycling industry, verifies their origin and consults the existing Environmental and Health Declaration Sheets. These products are referenced in an e-materials library, supplied by our Materials Manager. The products are then implemented by its installers and subcontractors, in accordance with the certificate obtained by the finishing materials, and according to the objective of the ecological label to be achieved on the projects.
Likewise, for fittings and furnitures, Quadrilatère verifies the origin of materials, and favors factories located nearby in order to limit CO2 emissions caused by transportation. A CSR furniture catalog, referencing eco and socially responsible manufacturers and products, is currently being drafted.
