Regarding our range of services
All the transitions are closely connected to our areas of progress:
The ecological and energy transition (EET) is – and will be for many years to come – at the heart of our areas of progress.
It involves all our activities and represents an excellent opportunity for our Group. To speed up this transition, our research and development efforts aim to come up with new business models based on innovation, digital technology and eco-sufficiency.
These models will be incorporated into our “Ecological and Energy Transition”, “Sustainable Cities” and “Mobility of the Future” solutions, which we are continuously expanding. We will continue to work with key stakeholders in a collaborative way on all these issues.
Establish the energy transition as the third pillar of the Group
To face the challenges of climate change, Egis is pursuing an ambitious strategy of positioning itself as a “low carbon” energy company through increased operations in nuclear power, with the aim of becoming a leader in the sector of renewable energy. In particular, offshore wind power, hydroelectricity and biomass energy have considerable growth potential.
Place smart technology at the centre of cities and mobility
The markets for mobility and urban services have recorded significantly high growth across the globe, influenced by rapidly increasing urbanisation, decentralisation, automation and digitisation. New needs arise from these underlying trends, such as an overall vision of matching supply and demand (hyper vision), smart networks and the transition to net-zero emissions.
Be closer to our clients
Client satisfaction is a priority objective for Egis and is at the centre of project management. The pandemic served to prove Egis’ ability to maintain a close relationship of trust with its clients and demonstrated the Group’s reactivity and capacity to offer new services. Egis has been able to develop these close ties thanks to its close proximity to the field in more than 100 countries.
OFFERING NEW SERVICES
- Trial in Lyon to combat the phenomenon of urban heat islands – Find out more
- Trial of Smart Cities in the public’s interest: Caisse des Dépôts first launched this project to test the co-construction process with local communities. Now, Egis is conducting a trial of a full-scale Smart City. Example: Low carbon construction of the wooden Silva Tour in Bordeaux; recycling of construction materials with Cycle Up at Village Olympique; Yhnova, the first 3D-printed house created using Batiprint 3DTM technology.
Much like adapting to climate change
Improving the resilience of our projects’ host regions – i.e., their ability to absorb the impacts of a climate event and continue their operations – remains a priority. The ability to resist and adapt to climate change is a major sign of an infrastructure’s durability, in addition to its intrinsic performance.

The digital transition
Whether it is smartphones, big data, virtual reality or IoT, digital technology is all around us! It has deeply transformed the ways we live, think and work, and has brought our society into a new era. From the moment digital technologies gave rise to new services, we have been developing research projects and experiments to test them.

Read the article from Martine Jauroyon, Chief Transformation and Sustainability Officer, entitled, “Digital transformation: Egis shifts up to mode 4.0”. Extract: “A successful digital transformation is a responsible one, which places people at the forefront. Being smart is about contributing more connections, services and user-friendliness, but also more inclusion, better living conditions, resource efficiency and stability in the long term”.

The demographic transition
By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities and developed countries and we will have to contend with population ageing. For Egis, these are opportunities to develop a process of urban co-innovation with local stakeholders and residents in order to create better, more dynamic cities in which to live.
Through our behaviour
Integrating the CSR strategy into our management system remains an area of continuous progress.
Although we have progressed on various issues, there is still much work to do. Modifying behaviour is a long process that requires support and perseverance. This major project began many years ago and has been extended to the entire management system process. Components include strengthening the HSE policy, controlling our carbon footprint, respecting ethics, fostering diversity, building on the spirit of innovation at all levels, and perfecting our non-financial reporting processes. Additional components are sure to arise over time.
In 2019, Egis launched the 1.5° Pathway and organised a road trip of all major sites within the Group
To foster integration and raise awareness among employees and managers on climate-related issues, the division in charge of the CSR policy took a “climate road trip” of all major Group locations (France and abroad). The trip served to develop the dialogue started with employees, answer questions and hear suggestions to improve our efforts in the fight against climate change. Egis physically met with over 500 of its employees across the different sites and a special video was sent to those who were unable to attend. The suggestions, questions and corresponding answers were noted down and sent to all employees so they could have access to the same information. All materials were uploaded to the intranet.
The climate road trip was led by the Transformation and Sustainability division, the IT division (for the digital carbon footprint aspect), the Procurement and General Resources division (for the carbon footprint of our offices and vehicles) and the Group’s SD representatives. The road trip was a fantastic opportunity to present the range of Egis solutions specially designed to fight climate change and present the action plan that will allow the Group to achieve carbon neutrality across all entities by 2050.
“Our approach to CSR is neither moralistic nor philanthropic. It is a key focus for improvement and progress, rooted in an economic and social reality. It is part of a strategy of sustainable performance for Egis, its employees, its customers and for the populations of all the regions in which we operate. Purpose and consistency are the driving forces behind our work.”
