Low Carbon

What cost-carbon equation for a successful RE2020?

The conclusions of Le hub des prescripteurs bas carbone de l’Institut Français pour la Performance du Bâtiment (IFPEB) were restituted on September 23 and presented to the public on Tuesday, November 30, 2021.

With the new environmental regulations coming, carbon emissions will now be taken into account in the same way as energy consumption in new construction projects.

In concrete terms, what will be the economic implications of carbon reduction on projects?

To answer this question, le hub des prescripteurs bas carbone conducted a year-long study with construction players on real projects.

Our Kalifornia project for Bouygues Immobilier was one of the three case studies conducted by the HUB, led by Laure Meriaud and Jean Guidet.

This very concrete work allowed us to identify technical, operational and methodological levers to optimize the cost-carbon equation. These workshops were completed without waiting, as we improved our Kalifornia project, located in Malakoff, to be low-carbon.

Conclusion of our study: It does not cost more to lower the carbon weight of buildings!
