As an initiative from the group Eiffage, the carbon & climate platform Sekoya helps animate a "low-carbon industrial club", bringing together large groups, SMEs and startups with technical low-carbon solutions.
WHAT IS SEKOYA IN PRACTICE?
Both resistant and resilient, sequoia trees are among the oldest trees in the world. They are a true demonstration of the power of nature, as reflects the world's largest sequoia tree, Hyperion, after which the tallest wooden residential tower in France -implemented by Eiffage- was named.
Named after these natural carbon sinks, Sekoya, Eiffage and Impulse Partners' carbon & climate platform, aims to deploy low-carbon solutions to tackle climate change.
THE CARBON & CLIMATE PLATFORM IN A NUTSHELL:
The 1st French platform dedicated to low-carbon issues (led by Impulse Labs -a specialist in construction startups- in partnership with the Eiffage group, a leader in construction and concessions).
Calls for solutions contributing to enriching the pool of low-carbon solutions available to the Eiffage group and its partners.
An industrial club associating partners sharing a similar position on both carbon and climate-related challenges.
WHY CREATE A CARBON & CLIMATE PLATFORM?
A climate emergency
- The construction sector is the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases, causing climate change.
- Committed to a low-carbon approach since 2007, Eiffage has made the fight against climate change a main pillar of its strategy since 2016.
A collective response
- Sekoya aims at qualifying and implementing innovative technical low-carbon solutions.
- The selected solutions will benefit from a privileged relationship with the platform's partners (internal referencing of solutions, calls for bids, POC...).
