French contractor Eiffage has partnered with consultancy firm Impulse Partners, to roll out Sekoya, a carbon & climate platform dedicated entirely to low-carbon materials and processes.
Eiffage has said that, with climate change becoming a reality, it is fully committed to a low-carbon strategy. The group intends to lead the way with its own emissions, but also wants to support its customers in reducing their own carbon footprints.
The company says this can be achieved by it developing alternative solutions and incorporating these as fully as possible into its offers.
It is proposed that Sekoya will enable the formation of a low-carbon industry club, by making it easier to identify both new and existing solutions, and by encouraging interaction between all parties involved.
Committed partners to the project, including startups, SMEs, major accounts, suppliers, financial institutions and customers, will be able to discuss, document and promote low-carbon solutions.
Once audited, these solutions will be available for use in tender proposals with the aim of promoting shared sustainable growth.
