6 families of solutions
CERTIVEA has created six families of solutions to provide a suitable response to each of your projects, whether in construction, renovation or operation, of a building or a land planning project.
We are committed to understanding your challenges and objectives and to inform you on the most relevant certification and/or label for your project.
We will then be available throughout the certification or labelling process to answer any questions from you, your consultants or your design offices.
We place great importance on direct dialogue with our clients, their consultants and design offices. This is a key feature that sets us apart from other certification bodies, particularly our Anglo-Saxon counterparts
Three families of HQE certifications
CERTIVEA is a long-standing and exclusive partner of Alliance HQE-GBC France (Green Building Council).
HQE Building (HQE-B) and HQE Sustainable Building (HQE-SB), our two new families of solutions, , launched in June 2022, offer certifications for all types of non-residential buildings in all business sectors: offices, retail, warehouse, hotel, childcare centre, school, campus, museum, library, etc.
Hospitals and residential care homes will be added to this list of buildings by end-2022.
HQE Sustainable Territories, the third family, goes beyond buildings, to cover neighbourhoods, towns, cities, regions and the infrastructures deployed there.

Three families of dedicated labels
Labels help non-residential real estate players to valorise the performances of their buildings on a few specific themes, unlike HQE Certification that deal with many more themes covering all dimensions of sustainability.
Environment labels family
Quality of life labels family
Digital labels family
Our clients generally seek labelling for two types of situations
A client has designed a real estate project to reach a high level of performance in one specific area, such as energy consumption. The client is only seeking endorsement in this area, rather than applying for HQE certification or because the project does not qualify for HQE certification.
The client wants to underline the high performance of its building for one specific theme, while also seeking HQE Building or HQE Sustainable Building certification, aware that the certification sought already covers the requirements for this theme.
We have introduced pathways between HQE certification and some labels to take these common requirements into consideration.
Our solutions offer cross-cutting services
- We offer different types of services: training courses, events, digital and communication tools, etc..
- We offer training programmes in France and abroad on our technical schemes and the themes they address. We recommend as coordinators, professionals who participate in these training courses and are well acquainted with our schemes.
- We also offer our clients a new digital platform, ISIA-2, for managing their certification applications online, along with new marking systems for circulating information about the projects we have certified or labelled.
- We are also more broadly committed to building communities of professionals who share our goal of making buildings and land developments sustainable, by means of various events and studies.
