The building and construction sector emits 145Mt of CO2e a year. Together with transport, our sector is the main emitter of CO2 and is therefore a key priority if France’s decarbonisation strategy is to succeed!
Conscious of the environmental and societal challenges to which we must respond collectively, BATIMAT is committed to a long-term strategy aiming to reduce its impact on climate, the environment and biodiversity as much as possible.
Starting with this 2022 edition, we hope to raise awareness among our stakeholders of the importance of these issues, but above all to set an example for our exhibitors, our visitors, our partners and our teams. This is the first step in a voluntary strategy to make the organisation of our events exemplary in reducing the impact on climate, the environment and biodiversity. With more than 300,000 participants and more than 2,000 exhibitors attending the show, this represents a sizeable challenge.
This ambitious strategy is based on a comprehensive approach which includes a recognised scientific method and a concrete, transparent action plan with measurable indicators.
