During the 17th edition of the Fimbacte Living Environment Awards on 15 October 2012, chaired by André Santini, former minister, member of parliament for the Hauts-de-Seine, mayor of Issy-les-Moulineaux, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Société du Grand Paris, Bouygues Immobilier received the Gold Award in the Communication Campaign category for its internal Innovation Forum, FIBI. The Fimbacte Living Environment Awards recognise the achievements of companies, organisations and local authorities in their projects, resources and communication campaigns.
The second edition of FIBI was held on 5 and 6 October 2011 on the worksite of one of Bouygues Immobilier's flagship programmes in the Paris region, the Fort d'Issy project in Issy-les-Moulineaux. Over 50 employees presented their innovations to serve Bouygues Immobilier and its customers inside six of the Fort's casemates, specially prepared for the event around six themes: the Fort d'Issy, customer relations, employees, new-generation housing, the urban environment of the future and new service concepts.
The pulse of the two-day event was set by a dozen "speed meetings", at which 10-minute talks on a variety of subjects were followed by a 10-minute question and answer session. Subjects included "Smart cities: what are they?", "Cradle to cradle: a profitable new business model for property development?", "Neighbourhood offices: towards a new services concept", "What are the advantages of a Green Office® from the user's standpoint?" and "What convergence between property development and soft mobility?".
A press conference on Bouygues Immobilier's strategy, vision and new developments for a sustainable urban environment, launching the UrbanEra® concept, was a highpoint of the opening of FIBI. At the event Denis Muzet, Chairman of Institut Mediascopie, presented the results of an exclusive study of "The Vocabulary of the Sustainable City", and Eric Mazoyer, Deputy CEO of Bouygues Immobilier, presented Bouygues Immobilier's new projects relating to the sustainable urban environment and UrbanEra®.
