Environment Labels Family

Six labels attest to the performance of new or renovated buildings on the themes of energy, carbon or biodiversity with brands such as Effinergie, BBCA and Biodivercity.

OsmoZ Built and Ready2OsmoZ

OsmoZ Built evaluates the building's characteristics that promote the health and well-being of users. The Ready2OsmoZ certificate recognizes that a new building certified HQE meets several requirements of OsmoZ Built.
OsmoZ Label


A building must integrate digital issues, not just connectivity, if it wants to be protected from the risk of accelerated obsolescence. The R2S Label was designed for this purpose, in partnership with the Smart Buildings Alliance.

Real Estate and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are two cross-cutting issues in all companies. Both must coordinate economic, environmental, human resources, organisational and image matters.

These issues are undergoing rapid and profound change under the impact of certain crises (Covid-19, etc.) and major transitions with respect to climate, energy, digital technology, work patterns and finance, etc.

Carbon neutrality, energy sobriety, quality of life at work and digital transformation are now priorities for all companies in all activities, particularly for their real estate projects and assets.

As work becomes increasingly hybrid, employees are seeking greener, friendlier spaces in their companies that restore meaning and value to life in the office, while promoting their health and wellbeing.


New ground rules in Europe and France

For construction, renovation and operation

Incentive and obligation policies for new construction and renovation

Major climatic, energetic, digital and societal transitions bring EU and member States to define and implement incentive and obligation public policies.

The European Union’s Green Deal seeks to redirect capital towards activities that are sustainable, to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Real Estate activities’ alignment with the six European Taxonomy objectives is already a key-issue for many players.

In France, three regulations are having a major impact on buildings under construction and the entire stock of non-residential property by bringing all public and private players to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint : the 2020 Environmental Regulation (RE2020), the “Eco Energie Tertiaire” non-residential energy-saving regulation and the BACS Decree (Building Automation & Control Systems).

These three regulations are all designed to reduce the energy consumption and carbon footprint of buildings.

The France Relance plan offers financial support from the State for the renovation of public buildings.
