WHY SEKOYA IN AFRICA?
1 billion people will live in African cities by 2040 according to the World Bank. African urbanisation will therefore accelerate with growing needs for building and infrastructure construction.
Eiffage is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in its capacity as a major player in the construction and concessions sector. We therefore need to transform our business models to decarbonise our activities in order to participate in a common vision: one where cities will enable a large number of people to be moved, fed and housed, with a low-carbon impact.
We believe that our success lies in collaboration between actors across our entire value chain. Our customers, our suppliers, our users are concerned, and that is why we are committed to collaborative innovation, open innovation through SEKOYA Africa. Three key words: adaptability, collaboration and innovation.
