Promoting a responsible economy

Our services allow our clients to reduce their own environmental footprints.

Telework
The crisis has allowed us to test teleworking on a large scale and prove that it can significantly reduce the amount of greenhouse gases emitted in urban transport.

Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) can help reduce the consumption of water and chemicals in agriculture, optimize traffic and parking in large cities and reduce energy consumption of heating and cooling systems, for example.

Collaboration
The crisis showed us that some trips can be avoided by using collaborative tools, such as video and web conferencing.
