2021 BBCA AWARDS: THINGS ALWAYS COME IN THREES! NEXITY STRENGTHENS ITS POSITION AS THE LEADING LOW-CARBON DEVELOPER IN FRANCE
Paris, November 24, 2021
Last night, BBCA unveiled its list of French low-carbon property developers. For the third year in a row, Nexity excels and is ranked first in two categories - those in number of operations since the creation of the BBCA label in 2016 and over the period November 2020/October 2021 - and number two in the other two categories - those in number of square metre since 2016 and over the last 12 months.
The low-carbon commitment is a key element in Nexity's strategy. Our unique service platform model allows us to pursue an ambitious daily path, certified by the Science Based Target Initiative as being in line with the Paris agreements, to help limit global warming to +2°C by 2030: reduce by 22% CO2 emissions per square metre delivered in all our development operations (scope 3 - indirect scope) and reduce by 28% CO2 emissions related to administrative buildings and vehicles (scopes 1 and 2), compared to 2019.
Over the last 12 months, more than 185.300 sqm of floor space has been certified BBCA, representing 1,864 housing units (60%) and 10 tertiary developments (40%).
It is a great source of pride for Nexity to be recognised once again as the leading French low- carbon developer in number of projects! The major challenge ahead of us is to make a low- carbon city affordable. And to do that, we must lower its cost. What we have achieved at Porte de Montreuil with a zero-carbon neighbourhood in terms of construction, operation and mobility, or the reversibility that we are implementing at the 'Village des Athlètes' in Saint- Ouen, must now be deployed on a large scale for all citizens. »
Véronique Bédague, Nexity's Chief Executive Officer
The result obtained today is first and foremost the result of a long-standing conviction. Since 2009, Nexity has believed in wood and has developed expertise in the use of wood in the Commercial real estate market: almost 126.000 sqm of floor space has been certified BBCA since the label was created in 2016. In the residential market, first wood-frame developments date from 2012. Nexity therefore has more than 10 years of experience and feedback.
For several years now, Nexity has been committed to the carbon performance of its development projects, whether in terms of energy or construction methods, and has extended the use of other construction processes and materials: wood pre-construction, wood + low-carbon concrete, bio-based materials, geo-based materials … This is particularly true of some large-scale operations that are both full-scale experiments and pilots for the rest of its residential and commercial developments, and a driving force for the construction materials industries, which are key stakeholders in these projects. This is the case, for example, for the Porte de Montreuil, which will be a zero-carbon district, or for blocks B1 and C1 in Lyon Confluence, where Nexity will build an "essential" building without heating or air conditioning.
At the same time, and in line with our DNA commitment to designing an inclusive city, Nexity has stepped up its efforts in housing with a major challenge: making low-carbon cities affordable. Because there will be no successful low-carbon city if it is not accessible to all.
