An initiative of the Bouygues group since 2014, the "Trophées Énergie & Carbone" awards recognise projects integrating high-performance solutions that reduce both energy consumption and carbon footprints. The prize-winners were selected by a panel of experts from both inside and outside the Group. The six projects short-listed in each category and the two special jury prizes exemplify the Group's energy-performance and low-carbon ambitions.
Bouygues Immobilier received awards in three of the categories and was handed one of the jury's special prizes:

BOUYGUES IMMOBILIER and BOUYGUES CONSTRUCTION

THE “ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES” CATEGORY AWARDED TO "NEXT DOOR: THIRD PLACES FOR A NEW APPROACH TO WORKING"
