The first call for low-carbon solutions is closed.

    The winning solutions from the first call for solutions will be announced on December 17, 2019.

    New calls for low-carbon solutions will be launched in early 2020.


    The Carbon & Climate platform seeks to identify and qualify innovative, sustainable and low-carbon solutions through an online application process. Eiffage and its partners will qualify the most effective solutions (via a carbon footprint statement and a life cycle analysis) with a potential to contribute to a more frugal construction.

    The platform is technically operated and hosted by the Impulse Labs accelerator, an actor experienced in identifying innovative solutions since its creation.


    New forms of mobility

    • Optimise mobility fluidity in congested urban areas (signage, digital control, adaptation to real flows...)
    • Enhance the attractiveness and intuitive understanding of public transportation offers for all types of users
    • Promote low-carbon forms of mobility and urban land use

    Biodiversity and ecological engineering

    • Reintegrate nature into cities as a source of ecosystem services: creation of freshness isles, urban agriculture and short circuits, use of CO2 for agricultural purposes...
    • Develop solutions to restore degraded natural areas (soil stabilization, water infiltration, soil decontamination by plants, renaturalization of mineral areas, etc.)
    • Tool to evaluate the quantities of stored biogenic carbon.

    Low-carbon design and implementation

    • Systemise the use of low-carbon materials
