French construction company Spie Batignolles has announced it will use carbon and clinker-free cement to replace its traditional cement sourcing for its projects.
With sales of €2.3 billion (AU$3.8 billion) in 2022 and more than 8,000 employees, Spie batignolles operates in six major business areas: construction, civil engineering, energy, public works, real estate and landscaping and environmental development.
Spie Batignolles Performance, Group Purchasing, CSR and Carbon Plan Director Aude Maury said the supply of the cement is in line with its commitment to environmentally-friendly construction.
“We want to bring meaning and create sustainable value for our customers, employees and shareholders, which is why we are delighted to be working with Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies,” said Maury.
The company carries out large and complex multi-disciplinary projects across Europe and further afield.
The company has elevated its sustainability actions in recent years. For example, in 2019 the company recovered 83 per cent of its inert and non-hazardous waste. This exceeds the European Union’s minimum recovery threshold of 70 per cent imposed on the producers and owners of this waste.
